a collection of some of the finest harmonica blues takes cut to wax in the '20s & '30s.

it is not difficult to imagine why the harmonica should have been a favourite among bluesmen; its price, portability & loud volume made it ideal for them. moreover, the harmonica was perhaps the best suited of all blues instruments to imitate & exaggerate the sound of the human voice. it could produce glissandos & vibratos that even a bottleneck guitarist would have been hard put to duplicate. "an entertaining & varied collection." - blues unlimited.
