Blind Willie McTellBlind Willie McTell 1927 to 1935 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Pivotal work from one of the first bluesmen to ever use "blind" in his name – sides recorded by the legendary Willie McTell when he was at the height of his powers! Most tracks here feature well-recorded vocals from Willie – especially for the time – a haunting accompaniment to his deft work on acoustic guitar, which makes up the bulk of the instrumentation for most of the tracks. Ruth Day joins Willie on a few numbers – and titles include "Razor Ball", "My Baby's Gone", "Atlanta Strut", "God Don't Like It", "Scary Day Blues", "Experience Blues", "Kind Mama", and "Cold Winter Day".

New Blind Willie McTellComplete Recorded Works In Chronological Order – Volume 1 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Document/Third Man, Late 20s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection of the earliest work of Blind Willie McTell – all recordings made in Atlanta between 1927 and 1929 – served up in a wonderfully spare style that really showcases Willie's work on vocals and guitar! The latter "sings" as much as the former here – often with these inflections that are completely sublime, and almost more compelling than the notes themselves – and there's a harmony between the instrument and the voice that really seems to expand the power of the tunes, even with such a simple presentation. Titles include "Statesboro Blues", "Stole Rider Blues", "Mr McTell Got The Blues", "Come On Around To My House Mama", "Love Changing Blues", and "Drive Away Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Document/Third Man, Early 30s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Landmark recordings from the legendary Blind Willie McTell – served up here on a host of classic sides originally recorded for the Columbia, Okeh, Vocalion, and Victor labels in the early 30s! The recording quality is surprisingly strong on most numbers – really able to capture the subtle vocal and acoustic guitar inflections that Willie can serve up like nobody else – a rich sense of presence and personality that still comes through all these many years later, and which may well resonate here on this beautiful pressing as strongly as on the original 78s! Titles include "Low Rider's Blues", "Razor Ball", "Southern Can Is Mine", "Stomp Down Rider", "Rough Alley Blues", "Mama Let Me Scoop For You", and "Searching The Desert For The Blues".

Document/Third Man, 1933. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Just a few day's worth of music, but a crucial set of tracks from Blind Willie McTell – all material that was done in New York on a few days in September of 1933 – some of it released on important Vocalion label 78s, presented here with some other previously unissued alternate takes! Willie's vocals and guitar work are wonderful, and get only a bit of spare backing on additional guitar, mostly from Curley Weaver – in ways that really just support McTell's lead with a bit of rhythm. Recording quality is excellent, and tracks include "Broke Down Engine", "B & O Blues", "Weary Hearted Blues", "Lord Send Me An Angel", "Death Cell Blues", "Savannah Mama", "You was Born To Die", and "Dirty Mistreater".
