We just found a limited number of Darker Blues books. This has been sold out for some years, but a stash has been uncovered and we think they should be sold to the public. Darker Blues is a 100+ page limited edition book featuring the work of award-winning photographer David Raccuglia, as well as classic Fat Possum photos.
-Darker Blues comes with a TWO CD set packaged in the back cover of the book. One of the CDs is a 7 track EP of remixes and previously unreleased tracks from R.L. Burnside. The other CD contains an hour of classic Fat Possum music featuring Solomon Burke, Junior Kimbrough and more.
-As if that isn’t enough, the package also comes with an 8 page pull-out comic book by Joe Sacco; a history of the Fat Possum label as well as the life story of T-Model
"You See Me Laughin" takes us onto the road and into the homes of R. L.
Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, T-Model Ford, Cedell Davis, Johnny Farmer,
and Asie Payton - musicians whose lives of violence, poverty, chance,
charm, and luck reinforce the precarious relationship between record
label and artist.
