    Delta Blues is alive and well.

    Documentary with soul. The blues played by Delta musicians today is as pure as blues get, and this tour of the deep south is steeped in the reality of the life that continues to give the blues its hold on us all. The music itself is superb. I saw one of the performers (Roosevelt Barnes) many times in Chicago and you can tell he's home where he's in touch with his soul in these performances. Go on with your bad self, ''Booba''!!!!
