Mance Lipscomb – You Got To Reap What You Sow, Texas Songster, Vol. 2
I love every single thing Mance Lipscomb ever recorded. I’ve already recommended Volumes 1 & 5, and his oral autobiography, I Say Me For A Parable.
Now, I’ll happily recommend Volume 2!
Some GREAT songs and performances on here. Personal favorites? All of them, but especially:
- Come back baby (been tryin’ to play this in me own sets for, what, 20 years?)
- Cocaine done killed my baby (love these happy-go-lucky dyin’ songs!)
- Silver city (such a killer vocal)
- You rascal you (best version of this ever, even better than Armstrong’s!)
Navasota’s finest. You can’t go wrong!
