Tommy Johnson
Cool Drink Of Water Blues

MONK

Terrific Delta blues, up there with Charlie Patton and Son House. Canned Heat got their name from here (it means booze); and Howling Wolf got I Asked For Water (She Brought Me Gasoline).



The Beale Street Sheiks Chicken You Can Roost Behind The Moon
The seminal Memphis bluesmen Frank Stokes and Dan Sane, recording for Paramount in the late 1920s.



Blind Blake Back Biting Bee Blues
The essential, wildly original ragtime-style finger-picking of the Floridian blues god.



Blind Blake That Lonesome Rave
One of the very greatest blues guitarists of all time. These sides are from the Paramount Studios in Chicago, May 1928, featuring singer Bertha Henderson (also Daniel Brown and Elzadie Robinson).



Blind Blake The Vanished Bluesman In Richmond
Lovely recordings from the Gennett Studios in Indiana, several with accompaniments by the great, great barrelhouse pianist Charlie Spand, from Detroit. With all-time classics like Hastings Street.



Ishman Bracey Suitcase Full Of Blues
Great, under-recorded Mississippi bluesman, a mate of Tommy Johnson, recording for Victor in 1928-9, with Charlie McCoy on second guitar.



Sleepy John Estes I Ain't Gonna Be Worried No More
The Tennessean's distinctive, emotional songs, 1929-37, often in small group settings, with piano, second guitar, Yank Rachel's mandolin. Stuff here done over by The Kinks, Dylan, Led Zep, Muddy Waters.



Furry Lewis I Will Turn Your Money Green
The Memphis bluesman's finest recordings, from the late 1920s.
Compelling stories in song, like John Henry and Casey Jones.





Blind Willie McTell Searching The Desert For The Blues
Okehs (as Georgia Bill), Victors (Hot Shot Willie) and Vocalions (Blind Willie) — with another amazing Georgia blues guitarist, Curley Weaver, and two fine Atlanta singers, Ruth Willis and Ruby Glaze.



Blind Willie McTell Fare You Well
Recorded for Vocalion (in New York City) and Decca (in Chicago) these tracks from the mid-thirties mark the height of McTell’s recording career. That's his wife Kate singing on Ain’t It Grand To Be A Christian.



Charley Patton High Water Everywhere
'Oh, Lordy, women and grown men drown / Oh, women and children sinkin' down, Lord, have mercy / I couldn't see nobody's home and wasn't no one to be found.'





Bessie Smith Them's Graveyard Words
At her peak in New York City in 1927, including celebrated sides like Back Water Blues, Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out, and After You’ve Gone.
