Overview:
The sixteen killer Depression-era blues tracks assembled here laid the foundation for Chicagos volcanic post-war blues eruption, and each of these performances are as penetrating and visceral as anything which followed. With a stellar roister that includes Sonny Boy Williamson, Robert Lockwood, Tampa Red, Robert Nighthawk and the great country blues mandolinist Yank Rachell, from whose marvelously primitive 1938 classic this set takes its title. Standouts here include the stinging slide guitar and evocative yodel burnished vocals of Tampa Reds marvelous Worried Devils Blues, the lethal, mandolin fueled craving of Elijah Jones fantastic, fast-moving Stuff Stomp, and multiple contributions from the two reliably superb Roberts, Nighthawk and Lockwood. Lively, vivid and still sounding as fresh as ever, this is a must have for blues fanciers.
