We gave it a B-

Mississippi blues artist Junior Kimbrough, the late grand master of the grimy hypno-groove, was such an inimitable force of nature that any attempt at homage is bound to come off as a bit stodgy, even when you have gale storms like Iggy and the Stooges, Blues Explosion, and the Black Keys in the mix. Everyone acquits themselves nicely here, but like so many tribute albums, Sunday Nights pales in comparison with its source of inspiration.
