The first Mississippi compilation, in print again for the first time in over 7 years. Here we have some of the absolute best performances of country blues and ballads ever put out, dating from 1926 - 1953. Early 78's that speak of the universal human condition in a profound way. Artists include Geechy Wiley, Blind Wille and Kate McTell, The Blue Sky Boys, Lottie Kimbrough, Robert Petway, Memphis Minnie and much more. No typical blues riffs or boring standards here - just truly unique artists trancending time, space and culture to bring you a little piece of their souls. Cover art by Chris Johaanson and Johanna Jackson.
