A traveling performer invited Lipscomb to go on the road as far back asbut he declined touring invitations until the blues revival of the late s and early s, rarely leaving home. Although he performed often, most of these performances were for his own community at local functions.
Remaining married to his Senses - Denney - Visualise EP Elnora throughout his life, with whom he raised a son and three adopted children, Lipscomb led a responsible hard-working life and did not fit the blues musician stereotype of the roving gambler or hard drinking musician. During the late s, Lipscomb relocated to Houston, where a local lumber company employed him during the day.
He spent his evenings performing for local audiences, often with Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins, whom Lipscomb had become friends with 20 years prior, when they first met in Galveston. It wasn't until that Lipscomb encountered the music researchers Chris Strachwitz and Mack McCormick, who would soon be recognized for discovering him. They met on a job site, while Strachwitz and McCormick were trying to locate Lightnin' Hopkins, who had recently left the area.
Strachwitz was in the initial stages of forming his record label, Arhoolie, and Lipscomb convinced the researchers to listen to Ryders - Klaus Heavyweight Hill* - Maximum Bass 4 music instead. This chance encounter would mark the beginning of Lipscomb's recording career and a decade of involvement in the folk Alabama Jubilee - Mance Lipscomb - Songster blues revivals.
