Description

Skip James is one of the "Mount Rushmore" historical blues figures, ranking right at the very top of the blues pyramid with the likes of Charlie Patton. His guitar playing was the most innovative and complex of all the early blues greats and his unique piano stylings have also fascinated fans for over seven decades. His singing, too, was totally unique in its high eerie delivery and haunting effect. Skip's complete total early recordings (18 selections) are presented here in dramatically improved new fidelity that offer even more testimony to his greatness. A bonus four tracks by fellow Mississippean blues legend Son House are also included in stunning and exciting new fidelity.
