You know you’re in for the real deal when 78-year-old James “T-Model” Ford shouts out the low-down truth. After a quick and dirty drum roll on this (studio) live set, he announces: “I’m a tail-dragger from Greenville Mississippi. I’m the boss of the blues. Can’t read, can”t write, and don”t been to school a day in my life!” Guitarist/vocalist Ford and his drummer Spam are the only musicians on this disc, aptly entitled Bad Man, but they sound like a five-piece band on a hot Saturday night. This is a recording you can’t stop listening to, and yet its richness is masked in three, two, or one chord simplicity. It’s what punk rock originally hoped (and ultimately failed) to deliver. Raw. Authentic. Relevant.
