Description
Having communed with many of the musical greats she regards as her personal mentors—including Mississippi John Hurt, Reverend Gary Davis, Son House, and Skip James—Rory Block gets that the music is about the uniquely personal life of each blues singer. Showing the range of Block's talents as well as that of Skip James's repertoire, these 10 selections include "Hard Time Killing Floor Blues," "I'm So Glad," "Nehemiah James," "Special Rider Blues," "Cypress Grove Blues," "If You Haven't Any Hay, Get on Down the Road," "Devil Got My Woman," and "Jesus Is a Mighty Good Leader." In the liner notes is an excerpt from Block's autobiography (When a Woman Gets the Blues), in which she describes visiting James in the hospital.

"Few performers can replicate the true mood of country blues as Block does…. The honest commitment to the integrity of the music comes through on every song. As she travels to the deepest part within her, she also transports the audience."—Art Tipaldi, Children of the Blues
