Release date: 17/04/2012

Barcode: 0646315200119

Catalog no.: AHLP0001001

Item ID: 369088

The very first release on the legendary Arhoolie label, from way back in 1960, is also the first for Texas acoustic blues great Mance Lipscomb who was a mere 65 years old at the time of its release. Prior to being "discovered" by the label's founder, Chris Strachwitz, Lipscomb had spent his life as a sharecropper in his hometown of Navasota, Texas. Lipscomb's "discovery" was one of the greatest by-products of the blues and folk revival of the late '50s and early '60s as this fantastic vinyl reissue of his first album will attest. Classic country-blues from a master.
Tracks - Side A: 1. Freddie 2. Sugar Babe, It's All Over Now 3. Going Down Slow 4. Babe Please Don't Go 5. Rock Me All Night long 6. Ain't Gonna Rain No Mo 7.
