Low-down lullabies

skip james – devil got my woman (vanguard lp, 1968) album

This 1968 album by Mississippi bluesman Nehemiah Curtis “Skip” James is getting much play these days: the easy-going and plaintive songs by the then 66-year old singer strike an unexpected chord in the middle of diapers, naps and feeding. Great sleeve as well!
