Blues fans will love this limited edition 12 vinyl of vintage recordings by Delta blues legend Skip James!
Born in 1902 to a preacher near the small town of Bentonia Mississippi, Nehemiah Curtis Skip James became synonymous with the unique tunings and finger-picking style of Delta blues, later dubbed the Bentonia School. With fire and brimstone in his heart, and the Mississippi blues in his soul, James toiled in relative obscurity for most of his life but his dark, brooding songs were rediscovered in the 60s by rabid blues enthusiasts from across the pond, including one Eric Clapton who recorded James s I m So Glad for the first Cream album. This special limited edition vinyl compilation contains not only that track but several of James s best known compositions, from the melancholic Devil Got My Woman to the gospel Jesus Is A Mighty Good Leader and a whole lot more! --Official Press Release

Don't buy this in the belief that it will contain any material you don't already have. If you know who Skip James is, it is a safe bet that you have already heard his early recordings. This is 10 pounds of the same shit in a different 5 pound bag, but of far inferior quality.
The reissue "Greatest of the Delta Blues Singers" is a far preferable version of the same material. Pay the extra five bucks and get something which will retain it's value.
