If this doesn't win all kinds of blues awards, I want to know why.
Precious Bryant is the genuine article; she lives in a trailer in Georgia, and this CD was recorded in the living room of a friend's house. Nothing but her voice and her guitar.
That's all there needs to be. Precious is a dynamic, adept guitarist; she sounds like two players all by herself. Her fingerpicking is precise and funky and motivates right along. It's probably some of the sharpest solo blues playing I've heard in a while.
Her voice is as good as her guitar playing. She has a conversational, sly delivery, and even on the more "down" numbers it seems there must be a grin and a wink behind it all.
This is happy blues from a woman who is completely disinterested in commerciality. The whole recording has an "out on my front porch with a little glass of whiskey" feel. Precious Bryant just wants to have a good time playing music and make sure you have a good time listening to it. She succeeds.
I would recommend this recording to absolutely everybody. The only people who wouldn't like this CD would be people who would be too crabby and mean to enjoy it anyway, and who cares what they think? You, on the other hand, need some Precious in your life.

In a society of plasticity and artificial celebrities, Precious Bryant's performance is a bright beacon that reminds you there is still good in the world. Ranks with the "O Brother Where Art Thou" album on the foot-stomp-o-meter.
I was first exposed to Ms. Bryant's music listening to NPR, and, just as when I listened to my first B. B. King record, it brought tears to my eyes. It's that good. The vocals are clean and beautiful, the guitar sounds like it's in the hands of one of the blues masters, as it is.
Ms. Bryant, please keep making records, don't keep that all to yourself. Like the Skynyrd boys sang, I'm getting up early in the morning to get myself some bottles and run 'em down to the country store to get some pennies to buy the next Precious Bryant album.

It is a rare treat to stumble upon an artist such as Precious Bryant. She doesn't so much play the blues- she radiates each note with a undiluted, uppity and soulful energy. Her music is the sound of bad weather passing. I feel this album best captures Precious in her element.

Though she doen't express much vocal range, her capabilities are hardly limited in any way. She posesses such a pleasant voice that pours out over her warm and plucky guitar playing. This cuts on this album were all recorded live, which in itself is testament to her truly genuine sound. Though this recording is recent, it does not feel so. Still, each of the songs feels quite relevant to both past and present.

Key Songs: "Broke and Ain't got a Dime," "Black Rat Swing," "Ups and Down," "When the Saints Go Marching In"
