“...I acknowledge that this must make it seem like Lipscomb is little more than a human jukebox, but you need to hear it to see the way it all comes up sounding just like all his own work - the mark of a true artist. The common factor - as well as a fine, rich singing voice - is his quite brilliant guitar plauing, a country fingerstyle that combined dexterity with a great sense of swing.... An excellent showcase of the work of one of the great blues songsters.”
