Repress! The first ever recordings of Fred McDowell, recorded by Alan Lomax in 1959. The first vinyl release dedicated entirely to this phenomenal recording session. 12 songs that highlight the depth of his repetoire - from droning & hypnotic versions of songs that later became blues standards such as 'Shake Em On Down' and 'Good Morning Little Schoolgirl' to his deeply felt renditions of spirituals like 'Keep Your Lamp Trimmed & Burning'. Accompanied at times by some amazing hair comb playing & beautiful backup vocals.
