(1958/61 'Delmark') (62:05/20) Acht Titel aus einer frühen Session für 'Delmar', damals noch in St. Louis und spätere Aufnahmen, die in Chicago entstanden. Gutes Material von einem der originellsten Bluesmänner schlechthin
Country blues at its best from the master of the nine string guitar. This is the first new Big Joe album on Delmark in 30 years. It features recordings made in St. Louis from 1958 which also gave us Piney Woods Blues (Delmark 602) and Stavin' Chain Blues (Delmark 609). And from recordings made in Chicago from 1961 which also gave us Blues On Highway 49 (604) and Nine String Guitar Blues (Delmark 627). Bassist Ransom Knowling accompanies on three songs and their studio banter is priceless! More blues tales from one of the greatest story-tellers of all time.
