Man From The Hill
LP 
Price: $21.79

Product Notes

Vinyl LP pressing. Willie Farmer is living proof that Mississippi continues to produce deep blues. The 62-year-old guitarist is neither a soul modernist nor revivalist, but simply a small-town auto mechanic who's never shaken his love for old school legends like Muddy, Wolf and Lightnin'. The Man From the Hill marks the first time that he's spent serious time in the studio. Recorded over multiple sessions at producer Bruce Watson's Memphis based Delta-Sonic Sound Studio. Farmer enjoyed working in a North Mississippi Hill Country vein with Jimbo Mathus and session drummer George Sluppick. He even dipped back into gospel, singing harmony together with Memphis' Barnes Brothers on [the Sensational Nightingales'] "At the Meeting." For the past thirty years Farmer has run his own auto repair shop and hopes that the release of this record and associated touring will allow him to retire. "I'm trying to get out of that shop, I'm tried of messing with those cars. It's been a long time."
