I have several John Hurt CDs including this one. Some of the material is duplicated on other CDs, but I don't care. If you like tuneful blues simply performed on an acoustic guitar, you will love John Hurt. His playing style sounds gentle and nimble, and, as Doc Watson said, there always seems to be a happy feel to all his songs, even his darkest or most lonesome blues. When John Hurt was rediscovered in the 1960s he was an old man, but his guitar playing was still very accomplished, and his singing relaxed. You feel as if you're in the presence of an old grandad who still has plenty of life in him and a twinkle in his eye.
The tunes "Make me a pallet..","It ain't nobody's business" and "Let the mermaids flirt with me" are especially delightful, the guitar echoing the tune, then singing the tune out for itself as instrumental breaks.
This CD is quite lovely. I suppose it isn't typical blues, simply because of that happy sound that it somehow has, but the singing is relaxed and the guitar playing is sparkling. It's hardly surprising that a whole generation of "folkies" in the 1960's were inspired to learn guitar having heard John Hurt. Incidentally, there is a fair bit of guitar instruction material around containing John Hurt arrangements. A delightful CD!

Saw him on the TV program Folk America and had to buy a CD.
A delightful and joyful link between blues and folk. Love his lyrical delivery, and gentle humour. Even his sad songs communicate hope.
Just a couple of duff tracks, which he probably wouldn't have wanted released, make it 4 star and not 5.
Good value otherwise.

A Great Talent 30 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
John Hurt is the only musician I know of who can, on one guitar, simultaneously play a bassline, chords, and a melody, and sing at the same time! You may think the best guitar player is Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan, but I disagree. They were fast, but Hurt is a true guitar master. "Coffee Blues," "Pallet on Your Floor," "Monday Morning Blues," and "StaggoLee" are fantastic songs, great for summer driving and to sing along with.

John is my friend 3 Dec. 2001
By Lowell D Mead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is my favorite feel-good sing-along album. There is not a bad vibe in this guy's being, as far as I can tell. The songs are all great, John's voice is warm and rounded, his guitar picking is a treat, it's just goodness all around and I dig it. There's nobody else out there like this (if there is, please let me know!).

This is the blues 3 April 2001
By Peter Imes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mississippi John Hurt is raw blues. Only he and his guitar star in most of the songs on Rediscovered and the two of them make for an incredible listening experience. Each song has meat to it-- stories that will hold your attention, make you smile and make you relax. Put this CD on, grab some iced tea, go out on the porch with a book and take it easy.
