Overview

A generous 22-track collection of recordings originally made for and released by Chris Strachwitz's Arhoolie Records, Shake 'Em on Down is a delightful set of modern country blues performances, and includes Mississippi Fred McDowell's elegant slide guitar playing on the title tune "Shake 'Em on Down," Booker White's chugging "Alabama Blues," Big Joe Williams' vibrant "She Left Me a Mule to Ride," Sleepy John Estes' characteristically delicate "Need More Blues," a fine acoustic version of "Poor Black Mattie" by R.L. Burnside, and a wonderful fife and drum workout by Napoleon Strickland and friends on "Oh Baby."
