Arthur Petties, Freddie Spruell, Romeo Nelson, Doug Suggs -- these are only a few of the blues singers known on record and in discographies to blues enthusiasts, whose rediscovery has not been followed by recording sessions, for they have forgotten all they knew, and hear with disbelief the records they made as young men. - "The Future of the Blues", Blues Off the Record, Paul Oliver

I knew you all would know about this gem.  I found it while rummaging through the best local CD/LP shop in town while my wife went to yoga next door.  This shop has had a good to very good blues section forever and when this gem popped up I had a flash back to fifty years ago when I'd find a recording by an artist that looked interesting but I had personally never heard.  What a gem of a recording and what man Mr McMullan must have been.  His singing and his guitar playing are magnificent.  What a treasure and to feel that excitement about a purchase again was timeless.

Also a shame that Light in the Attic don't appear to do higher quality electronic copies (FLAC etc) rather than just MP3s.  I'm not really a chronic audiophile but...


Looks like you might be able to buy it in FLAC from their Bandcamp page:

I just found this CD in my local store and the thrill of finding an artist recorded just after my high school days when I was playing blues and living life with a zeal that is hard to find today.  What a thrill to find this fine recording by this strong artist.  He reminds me of old recordings I will now dig out and more importantly he reminds me of some fine folks I heard, and played with over the years and miss today.  What a gift this CD is at a very personal level.

Hello all-
I was a few years behind on this one, but I finally took the time to listen to this album. For any other stragglers out there... this is a must listen.
I agree with all the superlatives of previous posts. The voice, the playing, the recordings are outstanding.
Interesting & unexpected song arrangements throughout. There are moments that sound both familiar yet fresh at the same time.

Hurry Sundown & Goin' Away Mama are instant favorites

I streamed the album, so now I'll probably have to find a hard copy for those liner notes.
