Sanctified blues recorded between 1927-1934. This is the sequel to the popular Life Is A Problem LP. Twelve songs of pure guitar driven gospel. This slab is as melodic as it is rockin'.
Beautiful between-the-wars recordings from the American underground - a mix of blues and gospel sides with a tremendously haunting feel!
It's pulled from a range of rare singles that mostly feature spare guitar and vocals - surprisingly powerful stuff, given the recording techniques - and often delivered with a freshness that goes way beyond familiar conceptions you might have about the music.
Features songs by Bukka White, Willie Mae Morris, Bo Weavil Jackson, Kid Prince Moore and more.
This is packaged in the old-fashioned tip-on sleeve.
