Harold Bronson, Music World, February 1973

MANCE LIPSCOMB is one of those bluesmen who has been promulgated by the blues revival. It's really too bad that his status is not one of the "greats" as he is quite a bit better than those so termed, but Mance didn't start touring and recording until eleven years ago.

Total word count of piece: 1729
