    Personnel: Furry Lewis (vocals, guitar).
    Recorded at his home in Memphis in 1969, towards the end of his life, this poignant album functions more as a historical document than a recording of the blues legend at his best, but Furry Lewis's voice and guitar-pickin' still have the ability to transport the listener, imbued with both the ruefulness and the bemusement of a man who's seen it all. On standards like "Saints," "Let Me Call You Sweetheart," and "St. Louis Blues," one gets the distinct sense that he's no longer singing the blues from the standpoint of an individual with problems, but as a representative of the human condition who is about to shuffle off this mortal coil.

  • Critic Reviews
    No Depression (pp.92-93) - "[A]n endlessly amused singer and guitarist who entertains us with his elastic sense of time and simple but deeply weird guitar interjections....He breaks rules because he's interested, as are many Memphis musician, in playing the molecules instead of the notes."
