The Immortal - Mississippi John Hurt

Where the Blues rears its beautiful and ugly head.

...And A Shot Of Good Booze

Mississippi John Hurt- The Immortal

Album Review:
"One of the best albums of country blues ever recorded. The fingerpicking is delicate, the vocals mellow and sweet. Many tunes that remain associated with Hurt are included here in versions that rival his legendary recordings from the late '20s. "Richland Woman Blues," "Stagolee," "The Chicken," and "Since I've Laid My Burden Down" sound as fresh as ever in these '60s versions. This album leaves little doubt as to why Hurt was so beloved after his rediscovery."
