Tommy Johnson & Ishman Bracey Canned Heat Blues-The Legendary 1928 Memphis Sessions Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
The recordings made by Tommy Johnson and Ishman Bracey in Memphis in 1928 timelessly reach out through the years and across cultures to ‘grab’ a modern audience. These are hugely influential early Country Blues recordings. The JSP remasters of these classic tracks have been acclaimed as the best-rich, warm and capturing every possible nuance and subtlety of these now 85 year old recordings. So it’s fitting that this becomes one of the first JSP vinyl releases (well, for 25 years anyway…). Superbly packaged and presented with a sleevenote by Neil Slaven.
