More Info:

Blind Boy Fuller, born in 1904 in North Carolina, was one of the noted bluesmen of the Piedmont school of blues, alongside the likes of Blind Blake, Josh White and Buddy Moss. A as a songwriter, singer and guitarist with a formidable fingerpicking style he occupies a significant niche in the history of blues during the late 1930s and into the 40/, prior to his untimely demise in 1941, His songs had honesty and integrity, reflecting his poor background, but also with a hokum humour redolent with double entendres. This 51-track 20CD collection comprises selected sides from the releases across his career on the Vocalion and Okeh labels, with tracks taken from as many of his sessions as possible in order to provide as representative an overview of his recorded output as we could, with notable titles featured including Rag Mama Rag, Get Your Ya Yas Out (borrowed by the Rolling Stones for an album title), Lost Lover Blues abd Step It Up And Go. It includes recordings with some of his noted collaborators, including harmonica luminary Sonny Terry, guitarist Brownie McGhee and washboard player Bull City Red (aka George Washington. His music is listenable and entertaining, and this collection is an enlightening showcase for a noted bluesman.
