The third in Fat Possum's Not The Same Old Blues Crap series – and a pretty substantial creative left turn in some ways, though still focused on raw, hardscrabble blues! Fat Possum figureheads RL Burnside
and T-Model Ford are in the mix, as you'd hope, along with Charles Caldwell, Little Freddie King and other blues heavies, but it's also got some reverent cuts by (then) upstarts The Black Keys, the Iggy & The Stooges and even Lyrics Born – showing the range of influence the one time unknown blues figures Fat Possum championed at the time had on various cats. Includes "Hadn't I Been Good To You" by Charles Caldwell, "Set You Free" by the pre-superstar Black Keys, "I Found Out" by Nathaniel Mayer, Juinior Kimbrough's "You Better Run" as covered by Iggy & The Stooges, "Crack Head Joe" by Little Freddie King, "Goin' Down South" by RL Burnside
feat Lyrics Born, "Cocaine Bill" by Kenny Brown, "Pushin' My Luck" by Robert Belfour, "Goodbye Slim Harpo" by Robert Pete Williams and "Bad Man" by T-Model Ford.
