Shake 'Em On Down by Mississippi Fred McDowell
Released: Jun 1989
Label: Labor Records
Fred McDowell opens this live 1971 set with the now-famous announcement, "I do not play no rock 'n' roll." Then he plays a shuddering, freight-train-heavy "Shake 'Em On Down." McDowell's unmatched slide guitar slashes and rumbling bass rhythm is nothing short of revelatory. Unless you have a time machine, it just doesn't get any better than this.
