5.0 out of 5 stars One for anyone interested in blues, 27 July 2008
This review is from: Cypress Grove Blues (Audio CD)
I've enjoyed listening to blues for a number of years and this is one of the jewels of my collection. Certainly the sound quality is not fantastic - it never is when you're dealing with recordings from this era. But personally I think this enhances the record. It gives it a bit of history. Certainly there is a warmth and intimacy that digital recording techniques always fail to register.

Anyway, enough of that. Onto the music itself. This is not music to lift your mood. It's dark and gritty. When Skip sings about the devil it's not irnoic and meant to scare the crap out of you. The sorrow that radiates from 'Devil Got my Woman', the rage from '22-20 Blues', the loniliness from 'Cherry ball' - They're so real they almost jumps out of the speakers and wallop you round the head.

If all you've ever listened to is the bland drivel that's peddled as music these days then give this a go. It will open your eyes to how things were done and perhaps shopuld be done again.
