Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Whilst a few of these tracks creep back to the classic rural blues era of the late twenties, the majority of the songs on this compilation of Sleepy John Estes falls within the 30's and 40's. As such, they lack the archaic quality that makes many older recordings special but point the way for future developments in popular music albeit in a very rustic and non-commercial fashion. Accordingly, the sound quality is better than on the discs my more celebrated artists and whilst Estes does tackle some of the social issues of the day, the emotional clout of the likes of Blind Lemon Jefferson is swapped for an almost good-natured bounce. There is a chugging jolity of this music on numbers like "The girl I love she got long curly hair" and "Divin' Duck Blues" where the appeal is impossible to resist. In many respects, the music almost looks forward to the homespun skiffle boom of the 50's and share a similar amatuerish feel. If you think about what else was being recorded in the 30's and 40's, there is almost a total disregard by Estes to the popular musical trends of the day rendering this music an aural history of a social under-class pegged down by the racism of the day. The better tracks feature a trio of guitar, mandolin and piano and I am quite taken by Robert Lee McCoy's harmonic too. Lyrically, the music expresses the grinding poverty than many blues musicians had to experience and the songs make reference to lawyers and policemen as much as the usual suspects of drink, floods and women.

Whilst I would guarantee that this record will certainly raise a smile, Estes voice can appear to be a bit thin and whiney and the diction is not always clear.
