CD Reviews

Unbelievable !
Jack Travis | Westerville, Ohio | 08/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jessie Mae Hemphill evoked in me a feeling of being with greatness. Her music is hard to categorize and seems to be a combination of blues, indian, and cajun music. If you aren't moved by her performance, you simply don't like music. 5 stars is inadequate to rate this album. To our great pleasure she recorded two albums. To our great sorrow, there were only two."
Delta Blues are Alive and Well
Bookworm | 04/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Strongly influenced by such blues icons as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Howling Wolf talented instrumentalist Jessie Mae Hemphill plays driving rhythmic delta blues. Her playing and vocals are evocative as is her song-writing - most tracks on this album are self-penned. This is the most impressive album I have heard in a long while from a modern delta blues player. Thoroughly recommended."
It's NOT Delta Blues
D. E. Landes | Northern California | 06/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Any true blues fan should take it upon themselves to learn the difference between Mississippi Delta music and North Mississippi Hill music. This is NOT a Delta Blues album, it is Hill music. I personally prefer Hill music to Delta. It is a more primative form of blues music perfect for jook joint dancing. You can't help but tap your toe or stomp your foot to it. Jessie May Hamphill is right up there with the best of the North Mississippi musicians, such as RL Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Fred McDowell, Othar Turner, Lonnie Pitchford, to name a few. She has recently suffered a stroke and can no longer play guitar. So buy her CD's now!! She won't be making any more."
