One solid and sustained beam of brilliance...,
This review is from: Fixin' To Die (Audio CD)
This record is superb throughout, with more variety than you tend to get in most blues collections. Beyond praise, so I won't go on about it. But NB it's well worth getting both this set and the JSB 5-disc LEGENDS OF COUNTRY BLUES containing all the pre-war recordings of Bukka White, Son House, and others, since the recordings of White made at Parchman Farm prison -- including the wonderful 'Po Boy' -- are cleaned up and made listenable on this single disc (they're barely audible on the JSB set, though the other transfers are excellent).
