Tracks drawn from a 1962 recording of McDowell playing in his Como, Mississippi house. The recordings were initially made purely as a document of a performer and a style, but eventually found their way to record and, finally, to compact disc. Somewhat raw, though the sound is actually very good, the recordings caught McDowell at his best, playing just for his own satisfaction.
Raw and rich
Some of the best blues I've ever heard... You can hear both the pain and ecstasy of the human experience in every note. Don't miss this legend.
Raw and real
Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because some of the song tittles don't match the right song. But this album is raw and recorded the way hill country should be heard.
