Acoustic Guitar blues, mostly Lonnie Johnson


Notes

Nine tracks including music by Furry Lewis, Jimmy Reed, and Lonnie Johnson, mostly the last. Lonnie Johnson was a real treasure-- he ranges from jazzy instrumentals to funky numbers with stride piano backing. He had a nice singing voice too, like an earlier Jimmy Reed. All of this mix except the Jimmy Reed track is from before 1935. There's a collector of 78s who used to sell (a few years back, not ancient history) cassette tapes from his collection; this is a transfer from that tape to CD.
