Mance Lipscomb was one of Arhoolie's Chris Strachwitz's greatest finds out there in Navasota, Texas. He was 65 years old when he made his first recordings for Arhoolie in 1960, and cut hundreds of titles, many of which are still unissued, in the next 9 years (he died in 1976). Mance was a country blues performer of exceptional talent, and included all kinds of songs in his repertory: traditional blues, rags, minstrel songs, gospel, country tunes, guitar solos. This third volume continues the excellence of the first two. Mance had a smooth, clear voice that was a pleasure listening to. A real treat on this CD is a non-musical item, SEGREGATION DONE PAST, which has Mance telling a couple of stories of Jim Crow/Crow Jim life in Texas. A most enjoyable CD; a real country blues fan's delight.
