African American string band a real gem.
arashi-itybt1 | Zion, IL USA | 09/07/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The "O Brother Where Art Thou" movie and soundtrack sparked my interest in Americana music, and that is how I was first exposed to the Mississippi Sheiks. If you are a Blues, Bluegrass or Americana fan, you won't be disappointed since the Sheiks incorporate all of these genres into their music. The Mississippi Sheiks (as well as all African American string bands) deserve recognition and should not be allowed to fade into musical obscurity. This rare and beautifully simple musical style is being carried on by today groups, such as the Nashville Bluegrass Band, whom constantly acknowledge Bluegrass's African American roots. Even though some of the recordings are scratchy, due to age and recording method, Vol 1, 2, 3 and 4 are a treasured find!"
