Many early Blues recording have been electronically processed and although old remain enjoyable. This heavily distorted, noisy and scratchy record has not been enhanced. A purist might enjoy its content but certainly not the rendition. The album offers no information on the artist, its content or even the lenght of the pieces which are all on the short-side. Better choices are available!
I have no idea why I couldn't see by looking at the crappy, lifeless design of the cover that this is some hack bootlegging and repressing the same Skip James material that has been rehashed under so many different guises. 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.
