Southern Blues Vol 1 (CD)
Release Date: 11/08/11
Despite the enormous amount of recording that took place in Chicago and New York most of the sessions for rural country blues artists took place in their hometowns with portable equipment. This volume presents a wide cross section of artists both internationally famous or hopelessly obscure recorded all across the Southern States of America. Recordings from Memphis, Tennessee, Nashville, Alabama and Georgia made for legendary labels Gennett, Paramount, Vocalion and Brunswick can be found in this essential Blues primer.
