"This is a classic Blues album put together by Document Records. Both versions of "Kassie Jones" and "John Henry" are excellent, "I Will Turn Your Money Green" is humorous and features some of Furry's best guitar playing, and "Falling Down Blues" is a personal favorite. It's easy to see why the great Dave Van Ronk covered "Dry Land Blues". If you've only heard post-World War II Furry Lewis recordings, you really need to pick this up. His guitar playing was immaculate in the 20s, his singing gentler on the ears, and his lyrics were, well, the kind that only Furry could produce. This is one of the best releases in the entire Document Records catalogue. I highly recommend everyone buying this, or even downloading it off of Amazon.com. It is most definitely worth it. When I hear the lyrics, "I wished I had a-died, mama, when I were young. I would not a-had this low-down race to run", I get the chills!"
