(4 out of 5 stars)
"This may not be all of Huddie William Ledbetter's essential recordings, but Indigo's budget-priced "Good Mornin' Blues" actually includes almost all of Leadbelly's best blues tunes, and several excellent folk songs as well...although "Cotton Fields" is unfortunately missing.
"C.C. Rider", "Match Box Blues", "Packin' Trunk Blues" and "Rock Island Line" are here, though, as is the original "Midnight Special", "Gallis Pole" (the basis for Led Zeppelin's "Gallows Pole"), "Goodnight Irene", and "Death Letter Blues" (which has nothing in common with Son House's "Death Letter" other than the title).
This is one of the very best single-disc Leadbelly compilations, and a great place to start.
4 1/2 stars - highly recommended."
