180 gram pressing!"Across the works of Americana traditionalists like RyCooder and John Fahey, earnest folkies like BruceCockburn and Gillian Welch, and even blues-fusionweirdos like Beck, the sounds and influence ofMississippi John Hurt can be felt. Among his DeltaBlues peers Hurt stood out equally for his gentle andgenial demeanor as his distinct style of blues guitar,which heavily emphasized finger-picking and lyricalnuance, and was intended for dancing to. A legend ofthe genre that might have been condemned toobscurity if not for the folk revival of the 1960s, whichintroduced a wider audience to him and his songs,which would be covered by the likes of Bob Dylan,Jerry Garcia, Taj Mahal, and others.Hurt's most definitive works can be traced backto 1928, when he recorded several singles forOkeh Records, where he would also come into theacquaintance of other blues legends like Blind LemonJefferson and Bessie Smith. These recordings wouldlater become signature songs of his, such as ""SpikeDriver Blues"", ""Stack O' Lee Blues"" and ""AvalonBlues."" The singles were not commercially successfulat the time, but attracted greater success decadeslater, when a younger generation of blues and folkfans would embrace him, allowing him to appear onThe Tonight Show, at the Newport Folk Festival, andtour and perform until his death in 1966. The 1928Sessions, which started it all for Mississippi John, arenow compiled here in their entirety."

"Like so many of his classic blues contemporaries, thelife of Charley Patton is cloaked in mystery. Yet evenamong the legendary bluesmen he frequentlyassociated with, he stands among them, particularlyrevered. (Often referred to by musicologists as one ofthe most important American musicians of the 20thcentury.) A veritable star across the Delta, Patton wasnot just one of the first recorded performers of bluesmusic, but also one of the first successful ones, packingdancehalls, juke joints, and various other venues. Hewould even act as a mentor to the likes of otherlegends, such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, andHowlin' Wolf. Famed for his gravelly vocals, hisversatility, and for his sense of showmanship, Pattonrecorded and performed from the late 1910's until 1934,frequently collaborating with his common-law wife,singer Bertha Lee, his career and life being cut short bya mitral valve disorder.Not long after Patton's death, the label he primarilyrecorded with, Paramount, went out of business. Themetal masters which housed those same recordingswere sold off as scrap, and could not be salvaged,leaving only weathered 78 recordings as evidence ofPatton's legacy. As the Delta Blues revival of the 1960sgot underway, renewed interest in Patton and hisforebears culminated in the release of Founder Of TheDelta Blues, a double-record set which compiled thebest of Patton's recordings with Paramount andVocalion Records across 24 tracks. A definitivecollection, an essential piece of music history, and awindow into the earliest days of the classicblues sound."

Though the blues explosion of the 60s broughtmany of the Delta bluesmen newfoundaudiences and appreciation, many were still leftto languish in obscurity. Frank Stokes is onesuch individual. Though a forgotten figurenowadays, Stokes was a fixture of theMississippi blues scene, frequently performingwith other local bluesmen such as GarfieldAkers, Dan Sane, and others. Having performedblues well before it began to flourish in theSouth, Stokes was a consummate professional,and deeply influential to future blues figures,and even the country performer JimmieRodgers, who took stylistic cues from Stokes.His performances were noteworthy for his adeptguitar-playing, his booming, stentorian voice,and for the numerous duets he recorded, whichfeatures subtle vocal and rhythmic interplay.Frank Stokes was largely forgotten among thebigger names that resurfaced after the bluesexplosion, but was eventually unearthed byhistorians and dedicated blues crate diggers.His legacy is captured in Frank Stokes' Dream,which compiles not only some of Stokes' finestworks, but those of the contemporaries heinspired, including recognizable Delta icons likeFurry Lewis, Memphis Minnie, and Cannon'sJug Stompers, just to name a few.
