You Better Run is the first career-spanning collection by Junior Kimbrough, one of the most influential and original blues players in the past 50 years. Hailed by U2’s Bono and Iggy Pop as a primal force in blues music, Junior never reached the mass audience that he deserved while alive, but his music endures, and continues to be discovered by music fans from all walks of life.

“The music is dark and vibrant, the sex nasty, the nights late and messy, and women not to be trusted.” (★★★★) – Arion Berger, Rolling Stone
