Fred McDowell - Missisippi Delta Blues LP


This is music that owes nothing to artifice, but simply makes its impact through the total honesty of the performer. Of all the blues singers of the older school who have been discovered or rediscovered in recent years, Fred McDowell may well be the most impressive, and this LP affords ample proof of his stature. Mississippi Delta Blues was recorded in Como, Mississippi in late 1965 by producer Alan Bates and originally issued by Bate's Black Lion label the same year. It has now been remastered by Infrasonic Mastering, and pressed on audiophile-grade vinyl at Pallas Group in Germany.
