Another Vicki Williams production which sees Hines with part composition credits and complete publishing. This record is raw/basic sounding blues, like an even looser Jimmy Reed (if that’s possible). The lead guitar is underrecorded, making for a very sparse solo section and the whole effort is pretty lo-fi. Match Box “borrows heavily” from the other blues/rockabilly song of a similar title. I don’t know much else about Johnny Nix’s career or biography unfortunately other than he was a local Mississippi bluesman. This is thought to be his only 45 but he was known to have been living in Benoit, MS up until at least 2009.
Updated April 2015: Johnny Nix currently resides in a nursing home in Cleveland, MS. He is losing his sight but can still talk & sing the songs on this record.
