Bukka White - Mississippi Blues (Sonet 1968)



This was a fantastic recent charity shop find. Bukka White was born in 1906 and recorded some 78s in the 1930s before spending a number of years in prison, apparently for shooting a man. This classic album of delta blues was recorded by the guitarist John Fahey in 1963 and if you haven't already, then you need to hear this. Great voice, great slide guitar as you can see:

Glad you're enjoying these deep, down home sounds. I heard that he was BB King's cousin - they sound like the town mouse and the country mouse.
