Biography

A rare performer in any day or age, Becky Barksdale embodies in one individual the vast Texas blues guitar tradition of a Freddie King, the flirtatious sensuality and assertive independence of a Bessie Smith and the raw passionate vocals of a Janis Joplin. Surprisingly, those conventions seem to have seeped into her pores rather than emanating from any specific source. My biggest influences ... Read more in Amazon's Becky Barksdale Store

5.0 out of 5 stars A Life Changing Event May 28, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I heard Satisfy Me on the House of Blues compilation last year just by chance.I became transfixed the first time I heard it. I wrote to a friend of mine in Houston and asked if he had heard of her. He sent me three of her albums and I became a fan for life. Real Live is my favorite of her collection. It is raw and real and intense. I agree that Satisfy Me is fantastic, and I disagree that I Just Want to Make Love to You is a low point. It is the best arrangement of the song I have ever heard. I am a blues singer with a band in Portland OR but I grew up in Louisiana near East Texas.Becky Barksdale's work touches my soul. I saw Becky and had the pleasure to meet her at a Easy Riders show this past January. Seeing her, meeting her and hearing the way she plays guitar and sings truly changed my life. She plays and sings the way I always thought it should be. Real Live is one of my top 5 all time favorite albums. If you like your blues bottom-line and dripping with moist emotion, buy Real Live.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressive! April 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD was my introduction to Becky Barksdale, a product of a random selection. Prior to purchasing this disc, I had never seen her perform or heard anything that she has released. Listening to the CD, I was readily impressed with her sultry voice and her ability as a guitarist. This is a really good CD and one that cries out for some attention. If you would like to hear some really good blues by a very talented young lady, give this a spin. Best track: "Satisfy Me" Low point: "I Just Want to Make Love To You".
