Blues Rediscoveries

During the folk revival of the 1950s and 60s, documentarians and aficionados searched for country blues singers whose music had previously only been known through old recordings. This album's music presents historic recordings of these singers from 1920-1940, while its liner notes describe these "rediscovered" musicians' lives in the 1960s.
