Recorded and mixed by Johnny Goss at Dandelion Gold.
“While honouring the past, this record sounds as bright as a new penny. That about sums up the feel of this recording: planted in yesteryear but cultivated firmly in the now.”
–The Bluegrass Situation
"Lonesome Shack may be based in Seattle, but you’d be forgiven for mistaking the band’s Alive Records debut, More Primitive, for a mid-’70s recording from Mississippi’s fertile Hill Country blues scene, owing much of its elegant boogie to the droning styles of R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough and Fred McDowell."
