Like so many other Delta blues musicians of the1930s and 40s, rock music owes a debt of gratitudeto the works of Blind Willie McTell. Considered oneof the finest guitarists and vocalists of the era,noteworthy for his then unheard of usage of a12-string guitar, artists and bands from The AllmanBrothers to The White Stripes to Taj Mahal havelisted the blind bluesman as a key influence. Fromthe start of his career in 1927, McTell cut numeroussingles for Victor Records, and maintained anoteworthy level of popularity in his home of Atlanta,but like many of his contemporaries, his careerskidded to a halt during World War II. McTell leftmusic during the 1950s and later passed of a brainhemmorage in 1959.Not long after his passing would come the Britishblues explosion, which would not only makehousehold names of Eric Clapton and John Mayall,but spark a renewed interest in the material ofclassic bluesmen like McTell. It wasn't long beforeinnumerable collections of such material came intobeing, including The Early Years, which capturesone of McTell's most prolific periods, from 1927 to1933. The singles included in The Early Yearsinclude numerous singles recorded for Victor, aswell as for staple labels of Delta Blues like Okeh,Vocalion, and Columbia. Featuring some of McTell'smost enduring works, including his most famed,"Statesboro Blues", which would famously becovered by The Allman Brothers, Taj Mahal, DeepPurple, and many others.
