Description

Blind Boy Fuller was the foremost pre-war bluesman to come out of the Piedmont region of the USA (the Carolinas and north Georgia), who lived fast and died young but recorded a substantial, successful and influential body of work in a short space of time. An expressive singer and guitarist, he played a variety of styles but is perhaps best remembered for his uptempo ragtime hits such as "Rag, Mama, Rag" and "Trucking My Blues Away". Another of his popular numbers, "Get Your Yas Yas Out", was appropriated by The Rolling Stones over 30 years later for one of their album titles . His popularity was such that, when he died in 1941, aged 33, Brownie McGhee was temporarily promoted as 'Blind Boy Fuller No.2'. Here are 100 of his best recordings, expertly remastered, with an accompanying extensive essay about the man and his music by blues writer Neil Slaven.
