Mississippi Fred McDowell: Church House, Farnham

Jerry Gilbert, Melody Maker, 8 March 1969

"I'M NOT a rock and roll singer. The only way you make me rock is by putting me in a rockin' chair. But if you wanna rock you go right ahead, because then I know you like me, and it makes me feel good." So Fred McDowell told an audience of 300 at the beginning of his act at the Church House, Farnham, on Friday.
