You Can Thank Me Later...Amazing MISSISSIPPI BLUES Vinyl!





Bukka White

THE MISSISSIPPI BLUES LPs (Various Rare Blues 78s on two volumes)
No. 1 1927-1940
No. 2 1929-1932


I always loved these two amazing vinyl compilations originally released on the Origin Jazz Library record label. Here’s your chance to hear “That’s No Way To Get Along” by Robert Wilkins (also known as “Prodigal Son” and covered by the Rolling Stones on “Beggars Banquet”) along with classic Delta blues rarities by Charlie Patton (sic), Skip James and Son House all from original 78s. And whoever put these comps together was cool enough to give us both sides of each of the rare discs!

I made this transfer from LP to CD when I was still working at Aron’s Records many years ago where I originally bought these LPs thanks to a new ‘underground’ pressing on fresh, clean vinyl.
