Renegade

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
After two albums co-billed to Cedric Burnside, blues singer/guitarist Lightnin' Malcolm issues his first solo album with Renegade. He's not alone on this album, either, but drummer Cameron Kimbrough, a grandson of Junior Kimbrough, gets a "featuring" credit on the cover rather than an equal co-credit.
