CD Reviews

You have to really listen to it.
Kavity Killer | denver, colorado United States | 08/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I listened to this album about five times before I noticed something unusual. The simple songs, the traditional lyrics, the rhythmic guitar, when added up, when listened to with something resembling sensitivity, convey a staggering and intense gentleness and peace. This guy RADIATES peace like some swami or guru. The beauty, though, is that he's not laying any philisophical trip on you. He's just being himself! You can tell that he is really at peace, and listening gives you just a little hint of that same peace in your own soul. He's one of a kind. Thank God for Mississippi John Hurt."
Simply wonderful

"this is my first written review, and i've chosen to write about this album in particular because it's my favorite. i've been listening to it now for three or four years, and i also play his style of guitar, and this album has just grown and grown on me. he is his own little symphony orchestra, with his voice, his guitar basslines and his treble lines (which usually play the melody) working so well's just music. if you haven't listened to this album (which is one of the best by m.j.h.) then give yourself a treat and do it. i tell you, this is brilliant stuff. another good album of his is the Immortal M.J.H. it truly is immortal. and anyone who says he was a better musician in 1928 as a young man doesn't know what they're talking about. voice more silky, yes, but as a guitarist and all-around singer he IMPROVED dramatically in 35+ years of practice alone on his front porch. please, buy this!"
This CD is so satisfying

"When I was a small child, sometimes I would lay awake in bed, listening. The adults were still up, laughing, talking, playing music. This is that tantalizing music that I never could quite hear. And it is just as good as I suspected."
