Mance Lipscomb – guitar, vocals

 

Arhoolie's Texas Sharecropper & Songster is a recording made in 1960, during the blues revival. Prior to the blues revival, Mance Lipscomb was an unknown, and his discovery was one of the positive byproducts of the revival. He was a great country-blues man, and this is perhaps his greatest effort, capturing him running through a number of traditional songs. Most of the songs are augmented by his jackknife slide guitar, and all feature his raw, haunted vocals, which make these classic songs sound timeless. ---Thom Owens, Rovi

Mance Lipscomb – guitar, vocals.

 

Like Leadbelly and Mississippi John Hurt, the designation as strictly a blues singer dwarfs the musical breadth of Mance Lipscomb. Born on April 9, 1895 in Navasota, TX, Lipscomb was a sharecropper/tenant farmer all his life who didn't record until 1960, "songster" fits what Lipscomb did best. A proud, yet unboastful man, Lipscomb would point out that he was an educated musician, his ability to play everything from classic blues, ballads, pop songs to spirituals in a multitude of styles and keys being his particular mark of originality. He appeared at numerous blues and folk festivals throughout the '60s, released several albums on Arhoolie and even one for a major label, Reprise, in 1970, Trouble in Mind. Four years later, Lipscomb retired from the festival circuit and passed away on January 30, 1976 in his hometown of Navasota, TX. He was 81. With a wide-ranging repertoire of over 90 songs, Lipscomb may have gotten a belated start in recording, but left a remarkable legacy to be enjoyed. ---Cub Koda

In the 1960s when the folk revival began to recognize country blues as an important art form, Arhoolie was there to capture it all on tape. It perhaps seems odd in retrospect that a number of scholars and collectors feared that the older forms of the blues had vanished from the landscape during the 1950s. Arhoolie's recordings of Fred McDowell, Lightnin' Hopkins, and other players gave ample evidence that prewar blues were alive and doing quite well, thank you. Texas Country Blues collects a number of tracks recorded by Mance Lipscomb in the late '60s and early '70s. Lipscomb may be first and foremost a blues player, but unlike Hopkins or McDowell, he broadened his repertoire to include ragtime and folk. "Rag in F" is a fun little ditty that brings to mind the bouncy piano work of Scott Joplin, while "Corrine, Corrina" and "Wonder Where My Easy Rider Gone" conjure up the ghost of Leadbelly. Whatever style he's working in, however, Lipscomb delivers each song with focus and feeling. There's the delightful "Mama, Let Me Lay It on You," and there are sharp, electric versions of "Blues in the Bottle" and "Angel Child." With it's generous running time and fine selections, Texas Country Blues will serve as a superior introduction to an eclectic blues artist. ~Ronnie D. Lankford Jr

A collection Texas blues, 16 songs cut during the mid-'60s, featuring Mance Lipscomb and a brace of lesser-known Texas bluesmen born between 1895 and 1907 and, thus, heirs and successors to the likes of Blind Lemon Jefferson and other renowned Texas bluesmen of the '20s and '30s. Strangely, the notes refer to this collection as representing the 'heart's blood of [those] anonymous Texas bluesmen who labored by day and played by night,' but Lipscomb, at least, is far from anonymous today, mostly thanks to Arhoolie Records' recordings. What is sad is that the rest of the players here are genuinely obscure, but were clearly the equals of Lipscomb or any of his even more celebrated peers from Texas. Babe Stovall (whose nimble-fingered six-minute-plus 'Worried Blues' is a highlight of the album), Willie Menifee, Nathaniel 'Bill' Barnes, T.J. Jackson, et. al all deserved better.

The playing is mostly solo acoustic, although 'Corrina, Corrina' gets a solo electric treatment, as a sort of fragmentary instrumental. Other familiar songs given fresh renditions include 'Jay Bird Blues' and 'Jack O' Diamonds.' And just for the record, there's little 'ruff' here except the wonderfully spontaneous singing - the playing is as articulate and unself-consciously beautiful as any acoustic blues you'll ever hear.
