Product Description

As students of the blues will know, the best music is often made in the most oppressive conditions. Discrimination and hardship led many African-Americans to abandon Alabama; they took their music with them, and this is how Alabama's blues spread to other parts of the United States. The musicians gathered here may have made their name in other locations, but their music is a direct and immensely entertaining link back to the Yellowhammer State where they were born and raised.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Excellent selection of county blues style tracks. Well worth buying. However, it might have had a warning about explicit lyrics, as a couple of tracks are very explicit, CD1 Track 23 and CD2 Track 21. They are not just suggestive like other blues, such as "I'm a King Bee". They were quite fun but might offend some listeners.
