Inside Junior Kimbrough's Juke Joint 1997

Leslie and I visited Junior's in 1997. R.L. Burnside played and later he and Leslie danced. Before we left I spoke to Kinney Kimbrough and asked if I could shoot some video (you'll see Leslie and Kinney talking at the start of the video). He said "Yeah man! If i'd known you had a camera you could have been recording all night." Well, damn. Oh well. So here, for my friends who never had the chance to go, is a couple minutes that'll show you the inside of the late Junior Kimbrough's juke joint. Junior passed on in 1998. The juke was burned to the ground in 2000.
