DOWN HOME BLUES CLASSICS - Memphis & The Deep South 1949-1954

DOWN HOME BLUES CLASSICS - Memphis & The Deep South 1949-1954:
Awesome 54 track collection on 2 CDs of some of the greatest Mid-south, Mississippi, and Memphis down home blues recorded during the 'golden years' of 1949 to 1954. Vintage collectors will already have much of this material scattered about on various CDs and well-worn LPs, but worth it just to have this many great cuts in one convenient package. This set is designed to compliment the other volumes in the series ... no duplication of titles so far. Highly recommended for beginners as well as long-time devotees alike. (Allmusic)
