Release Date: 10/01/21
Second volume of the complete recorded works by the Texas Country Blues King.
Blind Lemon Jefferson was a commercial sensation, the large sales of his first releases revealing to Paramount and the other record companies the existence of a species of blues beyond the vaudeville stage and of an untapped market waiting to buy it.
The first two volumes (of four) serve to remind us that those sales weren't simply a result of novelty, as had been the case with Mamie Smith; Jefferson was also a musical sensation, combining a piercing, wide-ranging voice with deft, imaginative guitar picking.
