The great R.L. Burnside has brought the essence of deep Mississippi blues into the 21st century and has earned legions of fans in the process. Bob has presented and produced R.L. since the early ’90’s including many now legendary live shows at the Rhythm Room, Live and studio recording sessions and a radio interview. Production credits associated with R.L have appeared on the following albums: Come On In (title track produced by Bob), Not The Same Old Blues Crap Volumes 1 & 2, The Big Bad Love Motion Picture Soundtrack, Rhythm Room Blues, Bob’s All-Star Blues Sessions and most recently the No Monkeys On This Train CD.
