Product Description

Product Description

One of the first generation of influential rural bluesmen to be recorded (and subsequently 're-discovered' by '60s blues revivalists), John Estes was only a rudimentary guitar player but his expressive voice, forthright way with words and intuitive knack of teaming with a pal or two who could augment his presentation placed him among the blues legends. As Barry Lee Pearson of All Music states, "The recordings he made from 1929 on have enormous appeal and remain remarkably accessible today. One of the true masters of his idiom, he lived in poverty yet was somehow capable of turning his experiences and the conditions of his life into compelling art".

HASH(0x995c8414) out of 5 stars Not quite a John Estes box set. 25 Jan. 2009
By T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A very good collection, yes, but I thought I was getting four disks of early John Estes recordings. This set gives you two disks of Sleepy John Estes, and the third and fourth are mostly Yank Rachel, Son Bonds, Hammy Nixon, among others (all Estes cohorts), with only occasional appearences by Estes on second guitar. Definately a good buy, but if your only looking for John Estes you might want something else, as most of the tracks on the first two disks are on his Yazoo Records collection.
