Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Mississippi Fred McDowell (vocals, bottle-neck guitar); Eli Green (vocals, guitar); Annie McDowell (vocals).
  • Recorded at McDowell's home in Como, Mississippi in 1964, and in Holy Springs, Mississippi and Berkeley, California in 1965.
  • Includes liner notes by Chris Strachwitz.
  • Mississippi Fred McDowell, who died on July 3, 1972, was one of the last of the original delta blues artists. He is noted for his bottle-neck guitar work, which is well represented here, as are two field recordings with his mentor, the elusive Eli Green (the only recorded representations of his work). Mississippi Fred McDowell is perhaps best known from songs covered by Bonnie Raitt and the Rolling Stones (who performed "You Gotta Move" on STICKY FINGERS, the original version of which is included in this compilation).
