Homesick James
Last of the Broomdusters

87 years-young and still pickin' his 1949 Kay guitar and singin' - Homesick James is a living legend of the blues, providing a glimpse back to the seemingly impossibly distant past of early blues history. Cutting his musical teeth in his cousin Elmore James' group, The Broomdusters, Homesick continues to display the wit and wisdom accumulated in his long life on this release. Some of his original songs contain the melancholy musings of a lonely heart, others have an air of unrepentant defiance about them. On his own tunes, and on the tunes Homesick covers by the likes of Memphis Minnie, Tony Hollins and others, the years peel away and the spark of intrigue lights the fire in the soul of the "Last of the Broomdusters."
