Recorded on Halloween night, 1966, in Copenhagen, Denmark, this one of the few great "blues rediscovery" albums that comes by its reputation honestly. With Roosevelt Sykes and Little Brother Montgomery sharing the piano stool, Sippie clearly shows that the intervening years had, indeed, been kind to her, belting out one great tune after another. Listing highlights is superfluous, simply because every track's a gem. The no-frills production is warm and cozy enough to make you feel like you're hearing the world's greatest one-woman concert right in your living room. And you're glad you bought a ticket.
Love Sippie Wallace
What a voice!! This album is awesome. Hard to believe the quality of this recording!! The first time I heard Sippie was on a Bonnie Raitt album, she was much older on that album. If you love blues, this is fantastic. Great Piano too!!!
Women Be Wise
This is great blues and I believe Sippie Wallace's best. Her voice is better than when she was younger and much stronger than her later years.
Born: November 1, 1898 in Houston, TX
