Lead Belly's Legacy, Vol. 3: Early Recordings

Lead Belly's Legacy, Vol. 3: Early Recordings

These eight songs are the fruit of Lead Belly’s first visit to New York in 1935, but the record company’s financial downfall prevented all but two—"Pigmeat" and "Black Snake Moan"—from reaching the market. This album reverses that misfortune of unavailability, and the notes provide vignettes of the bluesman’s experiences.
