Blind Willie McTell was one of the giant figures in early blues history. He was a brilliant technician as well as an especially expressive musician and singer. And he had a rhythmic sense second to no one. His repertoire covered the whole spectrum of early rural music: blues, rags, breakdowns, religious songs and more. Assembled here are his 23 best performances reproduced in the best sound quality they have ever been heard in. A genius! Songs like STATESBORO BLUES (yes, this is where the Allman Brothers got it), ATLANTA STRUT, WRITING PAPER BLUES, MAMA T'AINT LONG FO' DAY, and LAY SOME FLOWERS ON MY GRAVE. Earth shattering.
