While commonly lumped together with Delta Blues singers, McDowell actually may
be considered the first of the bluesmen from the 'North Mississippi' region -
parallel to, but somewhat east of the Delta region - to achieve widespread
recognition for his work.
Arguably the greatest recordings of the great Fred McDowell's career were the
two albums for Arhoolie, recorded at the height of the blues revival in 1964-65.
This is the first of those two and an absolutely stunning piece of delta blues
majesty. Stripped down beauty that's reissued here on high quality vinyl with an
exact reproduction of the paste-on sleeve. Includes download card.
"Two albums, Fred McDowell, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, were released on Arhoolie in
the mid-'60s, and the shock waves were felt throughout the folk-blues community.
Here was a bluesman with a repertoire of uncommon depth, putting it over with
great emotional force... Mississippi Fred McDowell had been in his adopted home
state, farming and playing all along... The success of the Arhoolie recordings
suddenly found McDowell very much in demand on the folk and festival circuit,
where his quiet, good-natured performances left many a fan utterly spellbound."
