Feelin' Good was the first album Jessie Mae Hemphill released in the United States and it differs from its predecessor She-Wolf in that it captures her at her rawest. Half of the record features her supported only by a rhythm guitar and drums, while the other half has Hemphill wailing away at her guitar and percussion simultaneously. The result is hypnotic, mesmerizing record that successfully updates Delta blues, making the covers sound as fresh as the originals. ~ Thom Owens
