ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In northern Mississippi, just beyond the Delta's edge, there is hoodoo in the hills, and the musics that thrive there have roots so deep their tendrils touch the shores of western Africa. These are living blues; hypnotic rhythms that wind themselves into möbius strips of irresistible and perpetual motion. In the hill country, the dancing always goes till down.

Hoping to share in the vast riches of this flourishing soundscape, the Jake Leg Stomeprs left their beloved Bucksnort, Tennessee, and made their way to Como, Mississippi, home of Jimbo Mathus' Delta Recording Service. There in the heart of the hill country, the Stompers sought to braid their chicken-fried, hokum-billy blues together with the haunting sounds of some of the area's most outstanding musical artists. Hill Country Hoodoo tells the tale of their search.

hoo doo
definitely tapeds into the hoo doo of them thar hills. Love the feel, love the tuba on several cuts. It as if your ears were drinking whiskey!

Fred Camfield

A lively collection (mostly)
This is an interesting collection that i would categorize as lively blues (except for the last track, I Shall Not be Moved, which is somewhat somber). It has the groups usual collection of instruments included banjo, guitar, washboard, and harmonica, along with some standup bass, violin, ukulele, fife and drums, etc., with various percussion. The thing about studio recordings is that you can include a lot more than you can with live performances. Not sure if they have the musical saw that shows up in other performances (it might be there). Vocals are mainly by Steve Gardner, but the last track has an unidentified female vocalist.

For other recordings by members of the group, see Walkin' the Dog (by Steve Gardner, Washboard Chaz, and the Jake Leg Stompers), and Wooly Bully Express (by the Jericho Road Show). Members of the group sometimes show up on tour, so you have to watch for them. Live performances are all different and include some audience participation - also you can get CDs signed.
