Les Blank & Skip Gerson – A Well Spent Life (1972)


Many people consider Texas bluesman Mance Lipscomb to be the greatest blues guitarist and songster of all time. This glowing portrait of the legendary musician (also life-long husband and sharecropper) is among Blank’s special masterworks. Instead of growing bitter, tough times made Lipscomb sweet.

The favorite film of Kurt Vonnegutt, Jr.
