<div class="bbcode_quote_body">Junior Kimbrough's death in 1998 left a howling void in American blues music. God Knows I Tried, Kimbrough's fourth Fat Possum recording and his first posthumous release, highlights the magnitude of the loss. Kimbrough single-handedly invented his own blues style, a mixture of hard-edged instrumentation, conversational, ghost-touched vocals, and, unique to the North Mississippi hill country, the looping, hypnotic guitar riffs which he plays through mild, fluid distortion, giving the whole a pulsing, dream-like quality.
