When Mississippi Fred McDowell proclaimed on one of his final albums, 'I do not play no rock & roll,' it wasn't a boast by an aging musician swept aside by rock, it was a statement of fact. As a stylist and purveyor of the original Delta blues, he was superb musician, with his slashing bottleneck and roughed up vocal style. This is one of the final performances recorded by Misissippi Fred McDowell. He was diagnosed with cancer while performing in 1971 and lingered for a few months into July 1972, finally succumbing to the disease at age 68. And right to the end, the man remained true to his word; he didn't play any rock & roll, just the straight, natural blues
