Product Description

Product Description

The 1960s folk and blues revival unearthed numerous major artists during the decade, none more so than Mississippi John Hurt. Active at the turn of the 20th century, Hurt had begun his career playing at parties and entertaining the farmhands at the numerous farms he worked on. He saw music as little more than something to be performed at social occasions, although he did record a number of tracks for Okeh in 1928. More than thirty years later, copies of these recordings found their way to blues fan Tom Hoskins who, using the recordings as something of a map, tracked Hurt down to a farm in Mississippi. Persuaded to make a number of concert appearances, most notably the Newport Folk Festival in 1963, Hurt also agreed to the recording of a number of new tracks. Sadly, the renaissance of Mississippi John Hurt was to be brief, for he died from a heart attack in 1966, but this live album provides ample proof that his emergence, however brief, was justified.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff 23 Sep 2009
By Skott
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Mississippi John Hurt on a compilation album and decided to hear some more. I didn't want to spend too much so opted for this low priced CD. I thought it was brilliant. I have since bought more of his stuff and have not been disappointed. I do however prefer this live CD to the one titled "Live". not only did the latter cost me a lot more, it also feels a bit sterile as if the artist and the audience aren't jelling. In short if you are looking at getting a Live Mississippi John Hurt CD I would go for this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Add a dash of ice 6 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Superb introduction to the man. Actually I would say the only CD by missi hurt you need. Wonderful and unique guitar style if a little limited in terms of variety between songs. You'll struggle to have a better hour on a Summers day if you play this through your cans, ice some cider and a slide into a comfy chair. Nobody's fault but mine arrrrrr

I came to hear Mississippi John Hurt via my interest in learning finger picking blues. I bought this album and Candy Man Blues together, of the two I like this one better because it is LIVE and captures the lovely nature of this man. It is full of the songs that I have got to know via YouTube. It is a great album and with twenty-one tracks is worth buying but buy the Make Me A Pallet album as it is a lot cheaper and they are both the same album, I know because iTunes has listed it as Aint Nobody's Business. As another reviewer commented MJH's style is more of a gentle folk-blues style but with great finger picking plus he has a lovely voice. I love the driving blues alternate bass line that is indicative of his style of music. This is the stuff that people like Dylan and Stephan Grossman heard and tried to emulate when they were young, if it was good to them it is certainly very good for me.
