Review by Jason Ankeny:
The sixth and final volume in the series assembles the fruits of Blind Boy Fuller’s final studio sessions, all dating to the first half of 1940. Despite failing health, Fuller is at his most incendiary on these sides — Shake It, Baby is among his most galvanizing dance tunes, while Little Woman You’re So Sweet stands as one of his finest originals. Most energetic, however, are the sanctified songs, including No Stranger Now, Jesus Is a Holy Man and Twelve Gates to the City — with his death less than a year away, Fuller burns with spiritual intensity, clearly yearning for some kind of redemption in his final months.
