Description
These 21 classic tracks venture beyond the blues to show the true breadth of African American secular song. Often called "songsters," travelling singers developed the ability to change repertoires to suit the tastes of different audiences. Including five previously unreleased cuts, this connoisseur's collection spotlights songs ranging from string band, ragtime, country, and Tin Pan Alley songs to pre-blues tunes and blues hybrids. Highlights include Warner Williams and Jay Summerour's "Bring It on Down to My House" and "Honeysuckle Rose"; Little Brother Montgomery's "Alabama Bound"; Mississippi John Hurt's "Monday Morning Blues"; Peg Leg Sam's "Straighten Up and Fly Right"; Pink Anderson's "Talking Blues"; Reverend Gary Davis's "Candy Man"; Brownie McGhee's "Raise a Ruckus Tonight" and "Pallet on the Floor"; Lead Belly's "My Hula Love"; John Cephas and Phil Wiggins's "Going Down the Road Feeling Bad"; John Jackson's "Donít Let Your Deal Go Down" and "Nobodyís Blues (If I Do)"; Big Bill Broonzy's "Bill Bailey"; Bill Williams's "When the Roses Bloom Again"; Snooks Eaglin's "Careless Love"; and Martin, Bogan, and Armstrong's "They Cut Down the Old Pine Tree."
