I love Mississippi John Hurt, Big Bill Broonzy, John Jackson, Blind Willie McTell, Reverend Gary Davis, Fred McDowell, Blind Blake, Blind Boy Fuller, Blind Willie Johnson, Big Joe Williams, and lots of others, but for me, Mance Lipscomb is the best. He played so many styles and was so versatile. He was a rare talent indeed. I love his singing, his playing, the production on the CD, everything. The sound on this CD is loud and clear and the playing is crisp and clear. Can't beat the price I found it for either.
