Complete Recordings (1927-1929) Henry Thomas, vocal, guitar, quills.
Genres: Country Blues, Songster, Texas Country Blues.

Informative booklet notes by Ken Romanowski.
Detailed discography.

There is something ineluctably joyous about the music of Henry Thomas - an exuberance, an ebullience that is utterly infectious and captivating. The music is archetypically American, figuratively capturing the perpetual motion of a hobo Texas songster and offering a panorama of vernacular song from the 1870s to the late 1920s. Among the twenty-three recordings he left for posterity are religious songs, ballads, reels, blues, and "rags". Continued...

Tommy McClennan The Complete Recordings Vol. 1 (1939-1940)
Tommy McClennan - The Complete Recordings Vol. 1 (1939-1940) Tommy McLennan, vocal, guitar. Genres; “Country” Blues, Mississippi Blues. Informative booklet notes by Keith Briggs. Detailed discography. Tommy McClennan was born on the J.E. Sligh Farm near Yazoo City, Mississippi, on April 8, 1908. He was a self taught guitar player and was influenced by Rubin Lacy, Charley Patton, Ishman Bracey and Tommy Johnson. His guitar playing is typical of the Mississippi style; simple, dominant, solid rhythms from the bass end with dashes of spikey treble riffs interjected between the vocal choruses. His voice was rough, hoarse and loud. Loud enough to be heard over the hubbub in a Mississippi juke joint on a Saturday night...

Mississippi Blues Vol. 3 Complete Recordings of Robert Petway, Mississippi Matilda, Sonny Boy Nelson
DOCD-5671 Mississippi Blues Vol. 3 Robert Petway, vocal, guitar. “Mississippi” Matilda, vocal. “Sonny Boy” Nelson (Eugene Powell ) , vocal guitar. With contributions by; Bo Carter, guitar. Alfred Elkins, stand-up bass. Willie Harris, vocal, guitar. Genre; Mississippi “Country” Blues. Informative booklet notes by Chris Smith. Detailed discography. Robert Petway made the first recording of Catfish Blues, and there’s a good case for believing that he composed it: ‘He just made that song up and used to play it at them old country dances. He just made it up and kept it in his head,’ says Honeyboy Edwards, who learned the song from Petway in person. The first bars of 'Catfish Blues' locate his music squarely in the gravel-voiced, rhythm-dominated tradition usually thought of as typical of the Mississippi Delta; the song chugs implacably on, powered by a monochordal riff. Petway was no guitar virtuoso, but he ably exploited his National steel guitar’s capacity for volume, and made effective use of the trademark triplet runs which can be heard in many of his songs; during Ride ‘Em On Down he varies the device, providing instead an exciting rush of sixteenth notes. Like McClennan, Robert favoured a dramatic vocal delivery, growling out the lyrics, bearing down hard on the beat, and encouraging himself with spoken asides. Continued...

Field Recordings Vol. 15 (1941-1942) Mississippi
DOCD-5672 Field Recordings Vol. 15 (Mississippi 1941-1942) “Rock Me, Shake Me” Various artists. Genres: Mississippi Blues, Country Blues, Songster. Informative booklet notes by Robert Groom. Detailed discography. Extracts abridged from this CD’s booklet notes: Out in the hill country of North Mississippi, in Tate and Panola counties, east of the Delta, a family of musicians were active for over a century. Fiddler Doc Hemphill had a string band back in the 1880s and 90s and his son Sid Hemphill picked up where his father left off. Sid was a multi-instrumentalist with a repertoire of around a hundred tunes and songs. His various bands performed in the hill country, in the Delta (where Turner Junior Johnson recommended Alan Lomax to seek out the “boar-hog musician”, Sid Hemphill), up in Memphis, out in Alabama. Sid Hemphill’s string bands were augmented with drums, and his own quills and fife. A long-time associate was banjo player Lucius Smith (b. 1892) who played with Hemphill for 54 years.
