Precio: $15.00

CD 465

Features 16 previously unreleased selections.
The Texas Country Blues Guitar of Mance Lipscomb is presented here from two recording sessions. A) from our first meeting in the summer of 1960 in Navasota, Tx. - all previously unreleased, and B) from an April 1966 session in Berkeley - much of which was first issued on our LP 1033 but with several unissued selections added including a rather remarkable stories entitled "Segregation Done Past". Mance Lipscomb influenced many folk artists like Bob Dylan, Taj Mahal, etc. during the 1960's & 70's when he appeared with many of the stars at folk festivals. He called himself a "Songster" and mastered an extraordinarily large and varied repertoire reflecting the full range of rural Texas African-American culture as well as many pop songs and fiddle tunes.

“Mance is usually called a 'songster,' a term that conveys the fact that Mance's repertoire included a wide range of material, but shouldn't lead anyone to think of him as anything less than a great bluesman. His guitar parts are so perfect that the addition of any other instrument would be superfluous, and his vocals combine musical and storytelling artistry. Lipscomb's range of bluesy, raggy, and ballad songs is represented on the 24 tracks here. Since two-thirds of it is previously unissued, blues fans won't need prodding, but this release could also serve as an excellent introduction to this still-underrated figure.”
