4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Band, Decent Collection December 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Mississippi Sheiks are the missing link, so to speak, between what we now know as Delta Blues and traditional rural black stringband music. Their songs have been recorded by everyone from the Camp Creek Boys to Bob Wills to the Grateful Dead (Stop and Listen Blues is the predecessor to Smokestack Lightnin').

Although our romantic notions of early Delta blues want to make Robert Johnson the hero of this time period in American music, Johnson was actually quite unpopular in his time. The Sheiks were the reigning heroes and should be remembered as such.

Fiddle players should listen carefully to this record, as Lonnie Chatmon uses several odd cross-tunings that aren't common in any fiddle repertoire. Guitar players should simply sit in awe at Bo Chatmon's (aka Bo Carter's) guitar playing on the selected tracks where he sits in, and marvel at the sparse delicacy of Walter Vinson's guitar playing.

The Mississippi Sheiks were truly their own chapter in American music history, there was no other band quite like them nor will there ever be. This record is a fairly nice representation of them. I do regret that the original Stop and Listen blues was not included, but the less charming Stop and Listen #2 (the sequel, so to speak) was, instead. If you can, get a collection with Stop and Listen Blues on it (the original one!).

The clarity of these songs is kin to a brand-new recording. Words are easily understood. One of the best historic recordings I've ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT August 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you love old school blues.... you can't lose. Great cd. I am a huge fan of all pre 1940 blues... the Mississippi Sheiks are definitely one of the few pioneer groups. In a age of the solo blues man, these guys pulled their talents together with amazing results. if you are a true fan of the blues... you gotta have this cd. I don't see how anyone could be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant July 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The sound is good considering when this was recorded. The CD gave me a good appreciation of what the Mississippi Shieks were about. I am new to their music and glad that I purchased this album. I have listened to the CD many times and have not gotten tired of their music.
