DOCD-5149 Skip James "Live" Vol. 1 - Boston 1964 & Philadelphia 1966 Skip James, vocal, guitar. Mrs Lorenzo James, vocal on track 12. Genres: Country Blues, Mississippi Blues, Country Blues Guitar. Informative booklet notes by Roger Misiewicz. Detailed discography. The dark and shadowy figure of Mississippi Delta Bluesman, Skip James, was re-discovered in 1964. He had already made recordings for the old Paramount label back in 1931 (DOCD-5005) before disappearing into obscurity. The three CDs featured in the Document catalogue present Skip James in concert, including a performance made in the same year of his re-discovery. Stephen Calt’s biographic book on Skip James titled I’d Rather Be The Devil brought further attention to this unique performer. These three volumes of “live” performances are undoubtedly among Skip James best performances since his Paramount recordings. Throughout them his guitar playing again and again demonstrates why he is revered as one of the best and most unique and creative of country blues guitar players to have recorded. Coupled with his rich falsetto voice the overall result is a spell bounding experience for the listener.
