You could say sparse and raw. True, but rhythmic and expressive, too. Why is T-Model so overlooked? This live CD from 2008 captures all the emotion and edge you could expect from an 83-year-old bluesman who spent years on a Tennessee chain gang for murder. On most of the tunes, "Taildragger" is backed by an electric band, but he also does some tasty solo acoustic numbers here. The real-deal Delta blues, I'll drink to that.
