Product Description

Product Description

Since his discovery over 40 years ago by Arhoolie's Chris Strachwitz, the sweet downhome sound of this Texas songster has been a staple in the annals of country blues. The selections on this disc are derived from previous Arhoolie LPs and are fresh to CD. Mance Lipscomb's amazing repertoire and a beguiling manner as a performer meant that he could communicate a song to 20,000 or a room of two with the same sincerity and integrity. Also on Arhoolie by Mance Lipscomb ARHCD001 - Texas Blues Guitar, ARHCD306 - Texas Songster, ARHCD398 - You Got To Reap What You Sow, ARHCD465 - Captain Captain! and ARHCD482 - Live At The Cabale.

Gentle blues played nicely. Mance Lipscomb was a great songster and plays a wide range of old songs which he ensures are there for future generations. I might be a bit mean in giving three stars but the reason is that the renditions sound a bit samey to me in the way they are played. However, someone else may not consider that this is so - it's all a matter of taste. It was Blues in the Bottle that encouraged me to buy this album because I think it is a classic.

Another great, if not unique, blues autobiography. Mance really was the main man, as they say. Great price and deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the finger pickers 16 April 2014
By Brian R. Straub - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another T For Texas 6 May 2009
By Alfred Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have written on the subject of Texas country blues guitarist extraordinaire Mance Lipscomb in connection with a series of DVDs that the well-known guitarist and performer Stefan Grossman put out a number of years ago, "Masters Of The Country Blues", (see the one with Lightning Hopkins, if you can)that featured the greats of acoustic country blues like Son House, Bukka White, Reverend Gary Davis and, well Mance Lipscomb. Most of the others came out of the Mississippi Delta tradition which is a shade bit different from the Texas tradition of the likes of Blind Lemon Jefferson, Lead Belly and, well, Mance Lipscomb. Lipscomb is probably a more versatile guitarist than the others, if for no other reason than he has a greater range of keys that he can play in and a somewhat unique picking style (at least it looks and sounds that way to me). Moreover, his vocals are a little smoother than the rough-edged sound of the old Mississippi plantation cotton fields. A perfect example of the difference is his `soft' version of the classic "Corrina, Corrina. My favorite Lipscomb song though is "Ella Speed". Needless to say it is about how she did her man wrong (although in the mix of these things it could just as easily be the other way around depending on who is singing).

4.0 out of 5 stars Navasota's Best 8 July 2008
By D. B Pepper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a very strong album by Mance Lipscomb, that is simply missing tracks that are on the level of his "Willie Poor Boy" or "Sugar Babe". Mance was songster; he was capable of playing all types of music; Blues, polka, waltzes, ballads, popular songs of the day, etc. I strongly recommend the Lipscomb/Hopkins dvd available from Yazoo, as it's very enjoyable.
