50 Years of Como MS Blues starts it's clock in 1965, with none other than Fred McDowell's genius with a sawed-off bottleneck and six strings. 'Frisco Line' springs from his guitar in a push-and-pull rhythm driven by the beat of his stomping foot. That was the same year Eli Green, Charley Patton's buddy whose sphere of influence extended from McDowell (his duet partner here) to Junior Kimbrough: these are his first, last, and only recordings. From 1975 and 1991, Othar Turner heaves and lurches through 'Rooster Blues'; the rolling pulse to Jessie Mae Hemphill's 'Go Back To Your Used To Be' is far more stabilized. Ranie Burnette, a soft-spoken hypnotist who juked alongside McDowell as well as R.L. Burnside, stitches together electrified riffs into fantastically dismal plods ('I'm Goin' Away') and fantastically dismal gallops ('Come On Baby'). 'I Wonder Why' lays down a minefield of snapped bass notes. Ultimately, we arrive at R.L. Boyce's doorstep in 2017 to find him cooking up an unplugged houseparty-for-one; confirmation that Como, Mississippi has remained just as raw and untamed as it was 50 years ago. Features many previously unissued tracks.
