R.L. Burnside is one of the only " real " north Mississippi Delta blues guys still alive. He's almost single-handedly keeping this hard, Delta blues alive. If you want to listen to him live, check out 2001's release: Burnside On Burnside . It's as punishing as it is beautiful. A true testament to north Mississsippi Delta blues.

Ironically, Burnside wasn't really discovered ( in the mainstream sense ) until 1992 - with the release of Robert Palmer's ( not the cheesy singer ) blues documentary - Deep Blues . Check it out. From this film, another great Delta-bluesman was re-discovered: the late Junior Kimbrough . Check him out. He's every bit as good or better than Burnside - and a major influence of The North Mississippi Allstars. Kimbrough's classic album is: All Night Long. Buy it!
