An Immensely Hummable History

Smokeorange

I first heard the Blue Tailed Fly cut on an old Murry Hill collection, and it stopped me dead in my tracks. He's a great guitarist, of course, but the fact the first CD was done totally a capella (he forgot his guitar that session) jaw-droppingly entertaining ... that's an accomplishment. He is the male equivalent of Nina Simone - he can sing anything and make it enthralling. There are lots of other good Lead Belly records, but this one is so clear and comprehensive, it's a genre unto itself.

Six Degrees of The Byrds’ Fifth Dimension

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

Where Did the Blues Begin?

By John Morthland, Contributor

The biggest debate in blues circles these days is, "where did the blues begin?" Ever since the blues revival of the 50s and 60s, the answer has been "the Mississippi Delta." But in recent years, more than a few blues buffs have argued, that while the Delta is where the harshest form of blues indeed gelled, there is very little evidence to suggest that blues started there. Further, Delta blues in its heyday was almost… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Four CDs containing the best part of Leadbelly’s only recordings on magnetic recording tape, which allowed him to stretch his songs to their usual length for the first time on record. The clarity of the recording, the presence of the between-song comments, and the selection of material makes this a seminal part of any serious collection. – Bruce Eder
