This photograph shows bluesman Junior Kimbrough at his home in Holly Springs, Mississippi in 1981. Born David Kimbrough on July 28, 1930, in Hudsonville, MS, he died on January 17, 1998, in Holly Springs, MS. See, Kimbrough said in a 1990 interview, I have a different type of music from other people. They play the other kind of blues, and I'm playing cotton-patch blues.... Ain't nobody now can play the blues that I play. Rockabilly artist Charlie Feathers, who recorded and studied with Kimbrough in the 1960s, called his style "the beginning and the end of music."
