An overlooked blues master, Scrapper Blackwell was a contemporary of Robert Johnson and other early Delta blues artists. A truly remarkable guitarist, Blackwell’s fluid acoustic single-note picking, in the Chicago blues and Piedmont blues styles, inspired a long line of musicians. This essential release presents Blackwell’s complete LP, Mr. Scrapper’s Blues, recorded during his early-'60s comeback. The long-unavailable masterpiece was originally issued by the Prestige/Bluesville label in 1962. These solo recordings, taped in Indianapolis in 1961, marked the return of the great country-blues guitarist, who had retired from the music scene in 1935 following the death of his close friend and partner, pianist Leroy Carr. In addition to the original album, this remastered collector’s CD contains 9 bonus tracks, including hard-to-find sides from the same period.
