Mississippi John Hurt's playing and singing are gentle and relaxed, and although not all the songs he plays are strictly blues, they are played in a country blues style. This album contains some lovely songs - especially "Let the mermaids flirt with me" ("When my earthly trials are over/ cast my body out in the sea/ save on the undertaker's bill/ let the mermaids flirt with me.") Most are solo performances, but some are accompanied by Patrick Sky on second guitar, which adds nicely to the arrangement without dominating it. Country blues fans should have at least one Mississippi John Hurt album, and this is as good as any to begin with.

A while back I bought a compilation of the Blues.... From his single track contribution, I was able to find 3 CDs featuring this extraordinary artist. His story is incredible. His music is brilliant in its simple rythems. A master class in acoustic guitar playing....but nothing flash. As authentic as it gets.

I had not listened to this artist in a long time, when I heard him again, I realised what I had been missing. this box set is the best you will ever get of him.
Buy it now while it is available , there is not one bad track on any of the three disc. I bought it as an mp3 download and saved a fortune , not to mention it was in my media player within seconds.

You have to really listen to it. 30 Aug. 2003
By Kavity Killer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I listened to this album about five times before I noticed something unusual. The simple songs, the traditional lyrics, the rhythmic guitar, when added up, when listened to with something resembling sensitivity, convey a staggering and intense gentleness and peace. This guy RADIATES peace like some swami or guru. The beauty, though, is that he's not laying any philisophical trip on you. He's just being himself! You can tell that he is really at peace, and listening gives you just a little hint of that same peace in your own soul. He's one of a kind. Thank God for Mississippi John Hurt.

simply wonderful 24 Nov. 2000
By Daniel Mackler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this is my first written review, and i've chosen to write about this album in particular because it's my favorite. i've been listening to it now for three or four years, and i also play his style of guitar, and this album has just grown and grown on me. he is his own little symphony orchestra, with his voice, his guitar basslines and his treble lines (which usually play the melody) working so well together...it's just music. if you haven't listened to this album (which is one of the best by m.j.h.) then give yourself a treat and do it. i tell you, this is brilliant stuff. another good album of his is the Immortal M.J.H. it truly is immortal. and anyone who says he was a better musician in 1928 as a young man doesn't know what they're talking about. voice more silky, yes, but as a guitarist and all-around singer he IMPROVED dramatically in 35+ years of practice alone on his front porch. please, buy this!

Hoser Joe 31 Aug. 2005
By Hoser Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have had this selection on vinyl for many years. As Kavity Killer (Dentist per chance?) notes this album is akin to a spiritual mantra. Mississippi John Hurt was counting days to his promised land when he recorded this music, in all of its profoundness, in 1966. Sometimes we miss the greatest poets in our own life, concentrating instead on sensationalist memorabilia. To listen to this simple music is nye on hearing the angels for any true lover of the folk-blues tradition. Buy it, this is no one just after fame and fortune here. This is timeless.

This CD is so satisfying 8 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I was a small child, sometimes I would lay awake in bed, listening. The adults were still up, laughing, talking, playing music. This is that tantalizing music that I never could quite hear. And it is just as good as I suspected.

I heard Mr Hurt before but didn't pay him much attention, then a song off this album came along on Pandora and I was blown away. Considering when this was recorded it is unbelievable, strongly recommend it to any die hard blues fan.
