  • Credits

    The second of Vanguard's 2 studio LPs with James, first released in 1968 in the wake of his appearance at the 1964 Newport Folk Festival.
    Personnel: Skip James (vocals, guitar, piano).
    Recording information: 03/22/1966/03/24/1966.
    Skip James was rediscovered 33 years after his early landmark recordings, in time to appear at the 1964 Newport Folk Festival. He, in fact, became quite active between 1964 and 1966, making the music found here (his final record) three years before his death in 1969. One can easily hear the influence that James's sound had on the then flourishing folk revival movement, and though he's perhaps not in his prime on DEVIL GOT MY WOMAN, he still sings his country blues with great intensity.

  • Critic Reviews
    Living Blues (5-6/91) - "Most well known as a guitarist but also skilled on the piano...His rhythms were complex and his playing could be so fast as to be unbelievable. His singing style made use of a haunting falsetto uncommon, but certainly not unheard of, in the blues...
