Avis sur l’album

One of the tragedies of the 1960s blues revival was that it caught so many of the veteran participants so far past their prime, that it was impossible for them to reveal more than a shadow of what they'd been when their reputations were made. Luckily, there were a few to whom that didn't apply, and Mississippi Fred McDowell was one of them. This CD captures him about a decade after his initial emergence from rural Mississippi, at the Gaslight Cafe in New York, playing a show with Tom Pomposello accompanying him on bass. McDowell was in his late fifties at the time, and quietly reveling in the career which had suddenly gotten him gigs in places he'd only ever read about (if that), and he was still in good health at the time — and in excellent voice and musical form. A rollicking "Shake 'Em on Down" opens the show and gives way to an ominous "I'm Crazy About You Baby," before he takes us through his highly stylized version of "John Henry," which is five minutes of killer guitar. It's followed by "You Got to Move," which is the highlight of this consistently excellent album, and McDowell's raspy, worn vocal textures will instantly make anyone forget the sincere effort at a cover by the Rolling Stones, which was roughly contemporaneous with this performance as a commercially released recording.

As a stylist and purveyor of the original Delta blues, he was superb, equal parts Charley Patton and Son House coming to the fore through his roughed-up vocals and slashing bottleneck style of guitar playing. McDowell knew he was the real deal, and while others were diluting and updating their sound...
