ESSENTIAL listening for all fingerpicking and blues fans...

"This album by Stefan Grossman is easily one of my favorite CDs of country blues guitar. Grossman is an acknowledged master of the genre, a prolific teacher and guitar virtuoso. This CD incorporates many different blues styles ie delta blues, ragtime, alternating bass (ie Missippi John Hurt), and the guitar styles of Reverend Gary Davis, of whom Stefan was a student. Anyways, this CD basically takes all of these styles to a new level, integrating many different techniques and very difficult peices, but at the same time with excellent taste and feeling. If you like any kind of fingerpickin blues, have no doubt about the quality of this disk. BUY IT NOW!"

"I've long since lost count of how many albums Grossman has put out; almost all are out of print at this point, but, luckily, here we are with a cd version of "Yazoo Basin Boogie." This was one of his early albums, ca. 1970 I think, and it was a less blatantly commercial effort than the others that surrounded it in time. In fact, it was both very close and very intimate, just Grossman and his guitar, and a whole bunch of short, beautifully chosen, and beautifully delivered country blues instrumentals. My favorite on this collection is 'Pigtown Fling,' in which Grossman sets this popular old work to a Bach-like counterpoint arrangement--which incredibly seems to do no violation to its bouncy, inebriated personality. But this is just me; any guitarist worth the name will find this set delightful on its own terms, and come to understand why Grossman is such a leader in this realm."

"Stefan's first major recording effort provides both listener and guitarist with an important portrayal of the country blues and ragtime forms of early America. A very diverse range of styles (and guitars) are on this recording and are played meticulously."
