part 2 of third man's remastered vinyl  reissue of blind willie mctell's complete recorded works.

willie samuel mctell was one of the blues' greatest guitarists, & also one of the finest singers ever to work in blues. a major figure with a local following in atlanta from the 1920s onward, he recorded dozens of sides throughout the '30s under a multitude of names -- all the better to juggle "exclusive" relationships with many different record labels at once. the recordings presented in this reissue series are the building blocks & dna of american culture. blues, r&b, elvis, teenagerism, punk rock... it all goes back to these vital, breathtaking recordings. comes with brand new, jaw-dropping artwork by rob jones.
