***Nine raw and honest tracks from the late rural Mississippi bluesman Payton. Upbeat and accessible songs sung with a voice that swings from James Brown soul to Solomon Burke R&B and back to classic Delta blues. Recorded live at Junior Kimbrough's Juke Joint and features the drumming of SAM CARR of the JELLY ROLL KINGS. Payton was born April 12, 1937 and died on May 19, 1997. He lived in a shotgun shack with no phone and no a/c, and whenever the fields were dry enough for tractor tires, he was working in them.
