This compilation highlights how the Delta blues became the most influential of all the blues forms. Featuring tracks by many Delta blues legends including Son House, Charley Patton and Skip James, plus many lesser-known gems by artists shrouded in mystery. Includes a FREE download card allowing you to download the full album as well as bonus tracks.

There can be little doubt that the blues grew up in the Mississippi Delta as an elaboration on work chants, slave songs, and the lyrical and haunting field hollers. Developing around the turn of the nineteenth century into the twentieth, the Delta blues became the most influential of all the blues forms, rising out of the fertile agricultural triangle located between Vicksburg, Mississippi to the south and Memphis, Tennessee to the north, and bordered by the Mississippi River to the west and the Yazoo River to the east.
