Bio

Iggy and the Stooges cover one of the greatest on this tribute album, Sunday Nights - The Songs of Junior Kimbrough.

Without a doubt, Junior Kimbrough was definitely one of the most talented artists to record for Fat Possum Records. His approach to the guitar was innovative and unique and his songs are great. Junior affects just about everyone who hears him. Briefly put: as rockabilly legend Charlie Feathers, who penned several songs for Elvis in the 1950's, once said to an interviewer, "Junior Kimbrough was the beginning and the end of Music." Junior was never given the recognition he deserved when he suffered a fatal stroke in 1998. Even though the sales of his records have declined, Junior’s influence and respect in the music world have flourished.
