    Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl.
    This missing link between the original Delta blues masters like Charlie Patton and latter-day practitioners of the form like R.L. Burnside, Mississippi Fred McDowell was one of the true blues originals. A proponent of the hypnotic, droning north hill style, McDowell had the rhythmic insistence, the raw vocals, and the gritty, down-home approach to make the Delta blues a transcendent experience. His bottleneck slide wasn't too shabby either.
    INTRODUCTION TO MISSISSIPPI FRED MCDOWELL is just that: a perfect way to get acquainted with the music of this blues legend. McDowell gives new luster to dusky blues gems like "You Gotta Move," "Shake 'Em On Down," and "Baby Please Don't Go:" the approach may be acoustic and old-school, but the energy leaps through the speakers and grabs you by the throat.
