Overview

Ain't a Gonna Lie to You

Ain't a Gonna Lie to You contains the final sessions by bluesman Mississippi Joe Callicott, recorded in 1967 and 1968 by blues historian George Mitchell. In the '60s, Mitchell had taken a trip to the deep South to record extensively both legendary and obscure bluesmen, including Fred McDowell, Johnny Woods, and Callicott. At the time of these recordings, Callicott had all but given up playing professionally; when he did play it was for his own enjoyment. Unlike the grittier sound associated with the Mississippi Delta, Callicott played in a relaxed style that had much in common with Mississippi John Hurt. Happily, Ain't a Gonna Lie to You is the first in a series of discs Fat Possum will be releasing from Mitchell's deep archives.
