Pure Old-School Mississippi Blues on Vinyl LP!
With Guitar Performances by Dan Auerbach & Marcus King!

72-year-old bluesman Jimmy "Duck" Holmes' 2019 album, the Dan Auerbach produced Cypress Grove, captures the raw, explosive sound of real Mississippi Juke-Joint Blues today. Cypress Grove is an aural postcard of a typical Saturday night at Holmes' Blue Front Café, America's longest operating juke joint. The album is anchored by tradition - which is natural, since Holmes is the last of the original torchbearers of the rural style known as Bentonia blues - but it's also explosive, raw, and unpredictably in the moment.

Auerbach's band of pros accentuates Holmes' full-blooded, deeply etched blues, lending dimension to both his guitar and voice. It's a modernization of his sound but not a bowdlerization; if anything, it's perhaps the finest realization of Holmes' blues. At the very least, it's certainly the liveliest and boldest album he's made.
-Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic, 4/5
