DADDY B. NICE tribute (continued)

Mendenhall didn't tour a great deal, and his album output was small, but for those of us who became acquainted with his music in the late nineties and early 00's, his material-uncompromisingly original, catchy without being commercial--will remain unforgettable.

One could hear bluegrass, reggae, and Zydeco blending with gospel and R&B in Mendenhall's songs, and his raw, folksy vocal tics made the cuts even more fascinating. You never confused a Mendenhall song with anyone else.  

In the latter years the up tempo song, "Party With Me Tonight," a feverish (for Mendenhall) rocker done in his typically unique and out-of-left-field style, from the Hard Times disc, gradually eclipsed the prior Mendenhall standards, "Shont Dont Dont" and "Time." Now they're all just part of the fabric of his lifetime.   DBN.
