"Blind Willie" McTell was one of the finest bluesmen of the 1920s and 1930s. His voice was soft and expressive, and his musical tastes were influenced by southern blues, ragtime, gospel, hillbilly, and popular music. He also developed superb technique and a highly personal style on the twelve-string guitar.

Based out of Atlanta, McTell cut more than 120 different tracks at different recording sessions during his 30-year career. This newly remastered CD release contains a selection of 51 Blind Willie McTell songs, recorded between 1927 and 1940. All of these poignant tracks would form the basis of McTell’s enduring legacy and secure his place as one of the blues legends of that classic era. This is acoustic blues of the highest order, full of emotion and heartfelt commitment.

lead vocals and guitar.

With Ruth Willis, Ruby Glaze, or Kate McTell (occasional vocals).
