Great Sound

Fantastic sound quality. Like hearing these tracks for the first time. Absolutely essential recordings; everyone should have these.

Wow!

After listening to my old C.P. albums for 30+ years, I was shocked at the great sound/clarity on some of the songs in this entire collection. It's like hearing some of them for the first time. For anyone mildly interested, you must at least pick a dozen or so of these. Charley Patton was so stylistically unique that everyone needs to have listened to him.

Further, Delta blues in its heyday was almost… more »

Preachin’ the Blues

By Mike McGonigal, Contributor

"Yes, I'm gonna get me religion, I'm gonna join the Baptist Church/ You know I wanna be a Baptist preacher, just so I won't have to work" — Son House, "Preachin 'the Blues" Blues singers recorded dozens of superb gospel sides during the commercial recording heyday of the '20s and '30s, and later during the folk and blues revival of the late '50s and early '60s. Many blues singers had gospel songs in their repertoire, but… more »
