They Say All Music Guide

This Document collection reissues all of Walter Vinson’s pre-war recordings, including several of his accompaniment performances for Leroy Carter (“Black Widow Spider”) and Mary Butler (“Mad Dog Blues”), as well as sidemen roles for the Chatmon brothers from the Mississippi Sheiks and Charlie McCoy.
