  • Larry Mizell, Jr. : 03/23/2022 03:08 PM
    R.L. Burnside (1926 – 2005) was a singular blues singer, guitarist, and farmer who lived and played in the rural areas surrounding Holly Springs, Mississippi. For most of his life he performed in relative obscurity with regard to the general public and blues fans. His style was mostly the one chord drone blues of his native Hill Country combined with Delta blues. He suddenly rose to national popularity in the 1990s through a contract with the Fat Possum record label, an appearance in the documentary Deep Blues, and recordings with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. His groundbreaking album, Come On In (1998), with its remixes and loops and modern electronic effects, made him a controversial figure in the blues world. Tours and acclaim followed up until his death in Memphis in 2005. Not only was Burnside’s music loud, good, and unapologetically fun, but he brought an outlaw attitude back to the blues that had long been missing from the nostalgia for its legendary figures.
