Movie Reviews

Great video!
Daphne D'Allesandro | Delta, Colorado | 03/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's wonderful to see the old greats in action. This video has no voice-overs, just the players themselves. You get to see Mance Lipscomb, Mississippi John Hurt, The Reverend Gary Davis, Big Bill Broonzy, Son House, Henry Townsend, Brownie McGhee & Josh White. I gave it to my husband as a Valentine's gift--he said it was the best present he's ever received."
A Country Blues Encore Performance- In One Place At One Time
Alfred Johnson | boston, ma | 08/17/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have reviewed all of the performers mentioned here individually and while I would have included a few others there is no question these guys (and it is all guys) make the A-list.

Mance Lipscomb, Mississippi John Hurt, Henry Townsend, Son House, Reverend Gary Davis, Big Bill Broonzy, Robert Pete Williams, Brownie McGhee and Josh White. Well, that is not a bad roundup of the greats of country blues guitar (mainly that means of, or from, the Mississippi Delta but it can also mean North Carolina or , as in the case of Mance Lipscomb Texas). I, and perhaps you, could add many more (Mississippi Fred McDowell, Tommy Johnson, Bukka White?) but here is the main point. For beginners you get a great rare video look at the masters in their prime (for the most part) doing their famous work. And all in one place. And for the aficionados it gives you ample reason to go out and get some of those others that were on your list but did not make it here.
