Lonesome Sundown

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Been Gone Too Long [Joliet, 1977]
A/k/a Cornelius Green of Opelousas, Louisiana, Sundown came out of a decade's retirement to cut this modest but exemplary blues LP. With his rounded rhythms, entertaining arrangements, good-hearted vocals, and Slim Harpo guitar, he is to Johnny Shines what the bayous are to the Delta--not as deep, but more fun. B+
