Some of my favourite early blues. And I might even go as far to say that "Parchman Farm Blues" is my favourite blues song of all time. Bukka's voice is pure emotion in that one. Everything else is exceptionally high-quality song-wise. Be prepared for not the best production. I'm guessing modern CD releases have been able to increase the sonic quality of these tracks by a bit.

I have the same CD as No.22 in the DeAgostini Blues Collection, 1995 made in The Netherlands.

Listening to this I can almost feel myself sitting on a sharecropper's porch. Considering how old most of these recordings actually are the fidelity is impressive and the pressing is very good indeed. A keeper to be sure plus it has the bonus of Fixin' To Die Blues on it, a song I consider one of the best blues songs ever recorded;.

This could have been better if the running order was chronological so as to see his development, as he is one of the few delta blues great that did change over time.
