(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ooooo, well, well! Peetie Wheatstraw, the self-proclaimed "High Sheriff from Hell," was one of the most popular blues artists among African-Americans in the 1930's. He had an unmistakeable piano style, a distinctive singing voice, and an emotional range that fit right in with both the blues and the emerging "jump blues" style of the late '30's. This first volume of his earliest recordings is a fine introduction to him, especially "Don't Feel Welcome Blues," "Mama's Advice," and "Ice and Snow Blues." Don't miss this great blues artist!"
