Ain’t Broke Ain’t Hungry - Bluesin’ By The Bayou CD

Ain’t Broke Ain’t Hungry is the 18th release in the incredible By The Bayou series - and the fourth volume of the Bluesin’ set.
Returning to South Louisiana for another helping of the blues, this 28-tracker includes rare and previously unissued tracks from stars of the genre such as Lightnin’ Slim, Lazy Lester and Slim Harpo, plus a host of lesser-known or completely unknown performers.
The set also features two surprises; artists who you would never think performed in the down-home style: Barbara Lynn and Cookie (aka Huey Thierry, of Cupcakes fame), but they sound right at home, with the unknown harmonica player setting the tone on Barbara Lynn’s track and Cupcakes’ guitarist Marshall Leday supporting his frontman with some mean blues pickin’.
As always there are a handful of mystery singers – was there really a “Ramblin’ Hi Harris” or, as with Blues Boy Dorsey, was his name created later when JD Miller was uncertain as to the performer’s identity?
Eight of these 28 gems are previously unreleased.
