CD Reviews

A fine sampler
Docendo Discimus | Vita scholae | 12/10/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"You should note that all of this music is acoustic, so no Elmore James or J.B. Hutto, but as a collection of early slide guitar blues, "Roll And Tumble Blues" works very well (the title track, by the way, is the original version of the song most people know as "Rollin' And Tumblin'").
The compilers have made some fine choices, and most of the lesser-known songs are good as well. I would probably have included Son House's "Pearline" rather than "Walking Blues", and there are a few other debatable selections as well, but "Roll And Tumble Blues" remains a fine introduction for the curious."
