Detailed discography.

The second volume in Document's chronological overview of Blind Boy Fuller's life and music contains some of his most popular recordings, including the 1936 sessions which yielded both Truckin' My Blues Away (an update of Tampa Red's "What Is It That Tastes Like Gravy?") and Mama Let Me Lay It on You (a rendition of Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe's "Can I Do It for You?"), both of them definitive versions.

Fuller's gift for making familiar songs his own pops again on his next session, from early February of 1937; backed by Dipper Boy Council and Bull City Red, he delivers renditions of Mamie, Untrue Blues (a version of the "Crow Jane" theme) and New Oh Red!, all of them revelatory and unforgettable.
