New Fred McDowell recordings from 1967

I just noticed this on another forum and thought to pass it on: a previously unheard collection of ?Mississippi? Fred McDowell recordings from a house party in 1967 has been put out on CD.

This CD of Bill Ferris recordings of McDowell has been nominated for a Grammy in the historical recordings category. Link to a story here about Ferris and the young UNC student Reed Turchi who remastered them and put them out.

Interesting that Neil Slaven's review in B&R mentions the entry in Shirley Collins' book. I've twice seen Shirley's associated talk and I remember she mentions that, after Alan Lomax had been reluctant to record yet another local musician, i.e. Fred, after the performance he wrote one word in his notebook: "Perfect!".
