You See Me Laughin'
6 October 2005 | by robhel-1See all my reviews

This documentary is a must-see for blues fans world-wide. It features many blues artists who would remain virtually unknown outside of their rural areas were it not for the efforts of the good folks at Fat Possum Records. The artists featured include D.L. Burnside, T-model Ford, Asie Payton and others. Pop stars Bono and Iggy Pop make comments about the artists and the genre. This documentary clearly shows that the blues musicians featured have truly "paid their dues". Unfortunately some of them have since passed away. This well-produced documentary keeps their music alive for others to appreciate.

If there is one downside it would be that one does not get to hear the featured songs in their entirety. According to the documentary a sound track is available through Fat Possum Records. And watching the documentary will surely cause you to visit your local blues purveyor to purchase some works by the fine artists shown.
