Fred & Annie Mae McDowell "My Home Is In The Delta" LP
Side A: Waiting For My Baby, I'm In Jail Again, The Girl I'm Loving, Going Down South Carry My Whip, Diving Duck Blues, The Sun Rose This Morning
Side B: Get Right Church, Amazing Grace, Jesus Gonna Make Up My Dying Bed, Where Would I Go (But To The Lord), The Lord Will Make A Way, Keep Your Lamp Trimmed And Burning, When The Saints Go Marching In
These recordings, made in 1963-4, showcase FRED MCDOWELL in his prime. As recorded by PETER WELDING, My Home Is In The Delta finds Fred and his wife, basking in the blues and gospel. Unlike Amazing Grace, which was also released by Testament and reissued by Sutro Park, this album is barer—a little more raw and personal—as if Fred was in a room right next to you playing the blues with his slide style that set the pace for everyone who came after. Fred McDowell is the king of the hill country blues and My Home Is In The Delta is the crown. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl with tip-on jackets featuring the original ultra-rare cover art.
