Label: Essential Media Mod

Genre: Blues

Perhaps the greatest exponent of country blues finger style guitar, Mississippi John Hurt stands as one of the most important blues musicians of the 20th century, with a career that began in the 1920’s and by the 1940’s was nearly forgotten until he was rediscovered in 1963 with his amazing music prowess still intact. He inspired a new generation of folk musicians and his importance cannot be overstated. Presented here are recordings from around the period of his rediscovery in the mid 1960’s, a few short years before his death, and contains renditions of tunes that are most identified with this iconoclastic guitar genius - including “Candy Man,” “Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor,” “My Creole Belle,” “Casey Jones” and more. All selections have been newly re-mastered.
