Jimmy “Duck” Holmes celebrate the release of his newest CD, Done Got Tired of Tryin’

Done Got Tired of Tryin’The Broke & Hungry Crew just returned from a juke-drenched weekend in Bentonia, Mississippi where we helped Jimmy “Duck” Holmes celebrate the release of his newest CD, Done Got Tired of Tryin’.

To take home a little slice of Bentonia, be sure to wander over to the Broke & Hungry Records store and order your copy of Done Got Tired of Tryin’. All of the album’s 10 tracks were recorded at Jimmy’s rural juke joint, the Blue Front Café. Half of the album’s tracks feature Jimmy in solo/acoustic mode; another four feature him plugged in and with support from the incomparable Lightnin’ Malcolm on drums. Old pal and Bentonia harp legend Bud Spires shows up on “Catfish Blues” to lend some hypnotically droning accompaniment.

The first 50 folks who order the CD through the label’s Web site will receive a complimentary mp3 of an unreleased Jimmy “Duck” Holmes track. Sharp-eared listeners will quickly understand why the song (“Take a Little Trip With Me”) was not included on the album. Hint: Train tracks run about 50 feet in front of the juke.

For those ordering from overseas, please order with confidence. No additional shipping charges apply.

As always, thanks for your support!
