Mississippi Fred McDowell - I Do Not Play No Rock 'N' Roll (1969)

McDowell levou 25 anos a mais que seus contemporâneos para tocar numa guitarra elétrica. Para ele isso era um processo natural mas os puristas já foram saindo com aquele nhên-nhên-nhên de fim dos tempos. Aí justifica-se o título desse álbum. Logo na primeira faixa ele faz questão de deixar bem claro: "And I do not play no rock 'n' roll, y'all, I just play the straight, natcha blues. And whenever you get somebody, you know, wants to plow for ya, you just call for Fred McDowell. I was raised on the farm, you understand. Now, the only way you can rock Fred you just put him in a rocking chair, just lay me down, you understand. That's my type of rockin'. And my type of blues, I play with a bottleneck. I first got this style from a beef bone, you understand. The rib would come out of a steak". Ele como eu, se é prá balançar, que seja numa cadeira de balanço.
