Mississippi John Hurt - The Rough Guide To Mississippi John Hurt LP
With his beautifully refined guitar fingerpicking style and gentle voice, Mississippi John Hurt had a truly unique interpretation of the blues which was rooted in the bygone songster and ragtime traditions.
Leaving behind a legacy of great songs, these beautifully remastered 1928 recordings show why he influenced many great musicians during the folk- revival including Bob Dylan, Dave Van Ronk and Taj Mahal. Undoubtedly one of the greatest and most influential of all of the pre-war country blues artists, this collection includes the legendary murder ballads Stack O’ Lee Blues and Louis Collins.
Mississippi John Hurt is forever immortalized in these classic country blues recordings.
