Guitar Blues / Various
One of three volumes that form an overview of the three most important instruments in the Blues: The guitar, the piano and the harmonica. Without these instruments the development of Blues throughout the 20th Century would have been very difficult. Both the guitar and the harmonica were cheap to buy or easy to make crudely. Pianos were installed in all clubs and juke-joints and recording studios. These volumes feature some of the greatest exponents of these instruments. The famed singer/guitarist bluesmen heard here include Robert Johnson ("Sweet Home Chicago"), Tampa Red ("Black Angel Blues"), Lonnie Johnson ("Blues in G"), Blind Blake ("Rope Stretchin' Blues") and Big Bill Broonzy ("I Can't Be Satisfied").
