4.0 out of 5 stars Bukka White-Mississippi Blues CD. 24 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is Bukka White's comeback album when he was rediscovered in the 1963 by some Blues enthusiasts including Ed Denson the Record Company owner.
Bukka understandably sounds rather nervous and hi guitar work,in particulat sounds very rusty!.However new recordings of songs such as "Fixing to die","Aberdeen Mississippi Blues",are a good historical document and have their merits.

Finally,if you haven't got White's 1930 recordings get them now as they are the work of an artist in their prime and are some of the most haunting,and great blues ever recorded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential blues recording 20 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In 1964, University of California at Berkeley college students John Fahey, and Ed Denson, both blues enthusiists, sent a letter soley addressed to "Booker T. Washington Wite (Old Blues Singer) c/o General Delivery, Aberdeen".Amazingly, the letter found its way to relatives of Booker (Bukka) who then passed it on to Booker himself. Two hours after recieving a letter from Booker, Fahey and Denson were in their car on the way to Memphis. They located his rooming house and were surprised to find that after 35 years of forced silence (prison), Bukka still played with the same fire and intensity of his younger days. The recording they made that historic day in'64 became this disc.The version of "Poor Boy Long Way From Home" is filled with the same passion and energy of an earlier,1930 version. You'll picture Bukka standing in his prison uniform, exhausted and broken as he sings"...When can I change my clothes.." from the classic cut "Parchman Farm Blues".No doubt life was rough for Bukka on the Parchman Farm Prison Work Camp and you can fell his heartache and misery in that song as if you were the unlucky one in prison stripes. At age 55, Bukka surely thought his time as a recording artist were over. But the two young white men who traveled across country to meet this legend breathed new life into an old tired soul.Fell the passion as he sings "Baby Please Don't GO". You'll think you really are on the "New Orleans Streamline" or "The Atlanta Special".You'll thrill to the complex arrangement of "Poor Boy Long Way From Home" done just as it was for Alan Lomax back when Bukka was still in Parchman.What we have here is a true slice of history.Relive is life through songs such as "Army Blues" and "Shake 'Em On Down".Yes, this cousin of B.B. King is a true American original whose timeless recordings should be treasured by generations to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bukka White Mississippi Blues album, LP format 18 April 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album at a local record store in Denton Texas.
It is a new 190 gram vinyl pressing from 4 men with beards.
Playing this on my record player through my home system the sound is excellent.
So any one complaining about the sound quality should go the album route.
This is one of the definitive acoustic blues albums of all time.
This is the real deal.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, so so sound quality 30 Jan 2009
By Banjosareus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've had this on tape for years and finally got it on CD. It' one of the first blues albums I bought and it is great. The sound quality is poor for its '60s recording date (of course compared to 78s it's perfect), I wonder if that's how it was recorded or if it's Aim Records - I don't recall it being this bad. Anyway, great music and you should have it, in some form.
