Editorial Reviews

Mance was in his own words primarily "a sharecropper and songster" who, after a week of hard work in the fields, would supply the music for both blacks and whites at weekend social gatherings in and around his hometown of Navasota, Texas. The Best of Mance Lipscomb contains 22 tracks hand-picked by Arhoolie Records founder and president Chris Strachwitz, the man who originally made the recordings in the 1960s. This collection of songs gives a glimpse into the understated brilliance of this Texas songster.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The best of Mance Lipscomb with 22 selections picked by Arhoolie, eight of these tracks are on the "Texas Songster" compilation, Lipscomb's first recording... Arhoolie is a reputable company specializing in rare and old recordings of folk and blues. Lipscomb, unique in everyway, songwriter, better than average vocalist, guitar player extraordinaire, his guitar playing is most certainly the highlight of these blues. Some tracks are live, but mostly it's just Mance in the studio with his vicious guitar licks, listen for the slide, Mance's "Joe Turner" slide. Country acoustic blues at it's very finest, highly recommended, especially if you like Lightnin' Hopkins, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Mississippi John Hurt... the audio is excellent, the songs roll with the flow - "So Different Blues", "Willie Poor Boy", "Freddie", "Sugar Babe", "Captain, Captain", Leadbelly's "Titanic", "Jack O' Diamonds", featuring two songs with definite Blind Lemon influence, "Rag In G", and "Ain't It Hard".

especially ones I never heard of before. One man singing and playing the guitar from years ago, making a little money here and there, especially intrigues me. This guy is the epitome of that era, style and quality.
