What a guy!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an amazing tour of the world of Blind Willie McTell, circa 1940. Recorded in a hotel room in Atlanta, Georgia, with John Lomax, McTell plays some amazing guitar and talks about his life as a blind musician. In one incredible sequence he describes in voice and guitar the history of the blues. Equally incredible is Lomax's stunningly insensitive prompt to get McTell to play a "complaining song," one describing how whites mistreat the blacks, and McTell's sensitive evasions to do so. A time capsule of race relations in that time and place. Any lover of Blind Willie McTell and his music should own this CD."
Very essential stuff (for acoustic blues guitar players)

"If you are a fan of oldschool acoustic blues get this C.D. for real this C.D. is awesome you get to hear Blind Wllie McTell like you have never heard him before it's very interesting to get to hear any blues legend from Blind Willies era talk and especially to hear him get interveiwed from one of the Lomaxes. Here Blind Willie kicks back and plays some songs from his childhood, and his era (early 1900's) tells you the history of the blues this may also be the only C.D. where Blind Willie plays slide (on a 12 string!) after hearing this I'm almost convinced Mr. Lomax thought he had come across Blind Willie Johnson that may be the reason McTell plays slide and sings some spritual songs (Willie McTell is more known as a ragtime player) any ways get it I feel very privlaged to own this . Thank you & Libray of congress 5stars all the way. Oh yeah there are some excellent songs on here : muder's home blues, dying crapshooters blues, bo weevil blues just to name a few"
One of the best.

"Just an incredible recording. Anyone who likes Mctell and/or acoustic blues should own this CD. Mctell's 12 string slide playing is breath taking. An amazing talent playing his usual excellant material. I can't say enough good things about this CD or Blind Willie."
