Consumer Guide Reviews:

Free Beer Tomorrow [Artemis, 2002]
the North Mississippi paterfamilias, "as pure and unblemished as Dorian Gray" ("Bound to Lose," "The Ballad of Billy and Oscar") *

Jungle Jim and the Voodoo Tiger [Memphis International, 2006]
Unorthodox producer and damn fine session pianist chooses songs better than he sings them ("Red Neck, Blue Collar," "Hadacol Boogie"). *

Killers From Space [Memphis International, 2007]
More good songs he discovered and you never heard of ("Dirty on Yo Mama," "No No Never Again"). *

Dinosaurs Run in Circles [Memphis International, 2009]
Circles described by comestibles still savored and carousing still fondly recalled ("Coleslaw," "Who Threw the Whisky in the Well"). *
