CD Reviews

A Great Collection of Lesser-Known Bluesmen (and Women)
Blind Mello Jelly | Welcome, NC USA | 02/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I LOVE this CD! After you've been through all the Skip James, Son House, Charley Patton, and Robert Johnson, this is a great place to go. I was pleased to find the haunting Geeshie Wiley song "Last Kind Words" that was used in the documentary "Crumb". Also here is "Outside Woman Blues" covered by Eric Clapton in his Cream days. A great collection with great notes, Yazoo does it again!"
Excellent overlooked early blues | New York | 03/31/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This wonderful collection contains many relatively obscure but quite good examples of pre-war delta blues. Particularly noteworthy, in my opinion, are both tracks by Blind Joe Reynolds and the uniquely paced "Bullfrog Blues" by William Harris."
Excellent collection of lesser-known Mississippi bluesfolk
J. Thomas | Oxford, Mississippi, United States | 06/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you feel like you've exhausted all the Delta and Mississippi blues from Patton to B.B., listen to this. This disc contains many of the only recordings by obscure, but no less talented, artists of early country acoustic blues. You may have heard Geechie Wiley's "Last Kind Word Blues" on the film *Crumb.* If you saw the film, the song has probably haunted you ever since. Worth buying for that track alone."
