Description

"Definitive" is a mighty claim when it comes to an artist of Leadbelly's stature, but the three-disc DEFINITIVE LEADBELLY box lives up to its title. Over the course of its 75 tracks, this collection hits all the sweet spots in the seminal folk/blues trailblazer's sprawling catalog, from staples like "C.C. Rider", "Goodnight Irene", and "Good Morning Blues",to lesser-known tunes, all mastered with excellent sound quality for recordings that date back to the pre-war era.

INCLUDES ADDITIONAL DVD ENTITLED "TALKIN' LEADBELLY"
