More Info:

Though Robert Johnson may now be considered the biggest blues artist from the past, at the time Blind Willie McTell was both more popular and predated even Johnson’s earliest performances, much less Johnson’s short list of recordings.
McTell played 12 string guitar in the Piedmont Blues style aka the Piedmont Fingerstyle due to the use of finger picking technic all the while being proficient with slide guitar.

One thing is certain, as he rose to prominence in the 20s, McTell could not have been aware of the influence he would have on generations of musicians to come including the likes of Bob Dylan (who wrote a song about McTell), the White Stripes, Taj Mahal, Canned Heat and of course The Allman Brothers who turned “Statesboro Blues” into one of their earliest signature songs.

For Record Store Day 2019 Traffic Entertainment is proud to present Blind Willie McTell’s 1928 release of “Three Women Blues” with “Statesboro Blues” on micro-groove 78 RPM vinyl housed in a spectacular recreation of the Victor label sleeve used for the original issue.
