The Rough Guide to Spiritual Blues


'The Rough Guide to Spiritual Blues' presents a musical exploration of the close ties between gospel music and the blues. Includes tracks by many blues legends including Charley Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson and Blind Willie McTell, guitar evangelists Blind Willie Johnson and Reverend Gary Davis and blues divas Bessie Smith and Memphis Minnie.

Lovingly remastered using pioneering restoration techniques it's an album which highlights how the line separating the Lord's song and 'devil's music' was very thin.
