Review

Block is a white country blues stylist whose singing and guitar playing teem with honest empathy for past masters such as Bessie Smith, Tommy Johnson, and Robert Johnson. As an interpretive singer, however, she conveys little sense of the pained emotionality of her mentors-her inflections are noticeably secondhand-and only when she handles unexceptional originals does her character begin to emerge. This recent outing, recorded for arcane reasons in Chatham, New York's Payne A.M.E. church, joins five earlier Block efforts, 1992's Ain't I a Woman, and a compilation disc-all fair to middling-in the Rounder catalog. -- © Frank John Hadley 1993 -- From Grove Press Guide to Blues on CD

Format: Audio CD
This albumn is creative and shows the wonderful guitar style of Son House as well as other bluesmen that Rory has melded into her own unique sound. She brings new thought into the blues community by both being female and telling "Mama's Blues" from that perspective. (A song that unfortunately I think a lot of women can relate to-that's what the blues are all about! everyday ) In addition "Got to Shine" can lift even the most depressed soul up. Please have a listen to this CD-you won't regret it!

first off, i must say i love rory block! her intensity and willingness to dig for obscure pre-war blues is nothing short of amazing! on this outing she does some primo stuff, but it still overall leaves me a tad disappointed. take into consideration that this is based on my first hearing, so impressions can change!

This is one of Rory's best releases. (Hey, any CD that starts with a train whistle has got to be great!)
All of the songs have Rory's trademark passionate singing and acoustic guitar playing. Terraplane Blues, The Spirit Returns, and the title cut are standouts. Got To Shine and Do Your Duty have a gospel flavor. Weepin' Willow Blues is also great.
Liner notes written by Rory, talking about her musical influences and some stories behind some of the songs on this CD. (Even explain the train!)
If you're looking for more Rory, Confessions of a Blues Singer is another great release.
