CD Reviews

Guitar picker ambrosia
Daniel L. Boyd | Missouri | 09/17/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a worshipper of Django, Robert Johnson and other guitar legends, I'm ashamed to say that I didn't know about Blind Blake. If you like guitar, this is ambrosia. It's like being a baseball fan and hearing about Shoeless Joe Jackson for the first time."
A revelation
danK | San Anselmo, CA USA | 09/30/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a fingerpicker and long-time fan of Rev. Gary Davis, Dave Van Ronk, Jorma Kaukkonen I am astounded to learn from this record that virtually everything they did was done not only first by Blind Blake, but better.
Brilliant, beautiful, indispensible!"
Rag-Time Guitar at its Best!
danK | 09/18/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Blind Blake was a master of the acoustic guitar. His rag-time style is clearly one of the most technically difficult to perform; but his natural ability makes it sound so smooth. A musical genius, Blake perfected a sound that can only rarely be imitated. Anyone who appreciates acoustic guitar will fall in love with this classic recording."
