This is one of the all time classic albums, everybody interested in blues should own a copy. It is quite unique, the kind of time capsule you would expect only to dream about: one that has the power to transport you back over half a century to a hotel room in Atlanta, where you can sit and listen while one of the greatest artists the music ever produced talks about the blues, about sacred songs, about his own life, about recordings, about what happened to him yesterday afternoon... And of course, while he sings and plays. The music is superb -"Delia", "Crapshooter" and "Chainey" are classic McTell songs, while his bottleneck 12-String guitar playing on some of the sacred numbers is a joy to listen to. Every home should have one
