Great !
20 January 2001 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

This warm 90 minutes documentary shows us unknown blues musicians from Mississippi. They play everywhere : on the streets, in dirty little bars, in a barber shop, in big clubs. The film really captures the true faces of blues and shows us that this music had nothing to do with nostalgia or record company hypes. All the performers are absolutely great! One, Big Jack Johnson, have since strats a career of recording artist. He's very intense, like most of these great folks. Superb!
