Jesse Mae Hemphill
The raw, stripped down, haunting North Mississippi blues of Jesse Mae Hemphill is a testament to the old blues sound of the Delta, even though her biggest years of production were in the early 80's. The track is off the compilation album Get Right Blues released in '94, which is a great introduction to her work if you like her. This song entitled "Go Back to Your Used to Be" contains her signature singing style, electric guitar, and foot tambourine.
