CD Reviews

Jordan Krall | Noir Jersey, USA | 11/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a haunting, trance-inducing album.. Simply wonderful. I don't want to say "If you like the blues, get this.." because this surpasses any one genre. If you like music that has emotion, creates an atmosphere and is a showcase for great guitar playing, GET THIS."
Country blues at its best
James Mann | Decatur, GA United States | 04/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"McDowell shines on this early (1966) collection. Acoustic blues, very dark, expertly played and sung. Fred didn't "play no rock and roll" but what he did play, he aced. If you love the sound of slide guitar on a National, this record is for you."
Excellent, Cheap McDowell Album
D. B Pepper | Plainview, NY United States | 06/14/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unlike his Mississippi Delta colleagues, Fred McDowell played in the Hill Country style. This basically means that his timing was eccentric, from a relative perspective, that his music was more closely related to what Lonnie Pitchford played on his diddley-bow, and that Fred's music was closer to what West African music sounds like. Fred possessed an excellent library of Blues lyrics in his head, he was one of the greatest slide players of all time, and his vocals, while not the most powerful, were always convincing. This is a great album to own."
