I moved on to Leadbelly compilations and collections and the recordings have rewarded me tenfold. I bought this book to try to get a fuller picture of the man. It does that admirably. I haven't read any other works about Leadbelly. I have no hesitation recommending this book.
A note about Mr Huddie Ledbetter. He is not an angel, in many ways he was trouble with a capital 'T'. His gift was his voice and for those that recorded it and preserved those recordings I owe a great debt.
