Way Back in the Country Blues
Hardly anyone has heard these unissued treasures (they were recorded by folklorist Harry Oster in Louisiana and Mississippi in '61 and '62 and hidden away in Oster's widow's house). They reveal a mesmerizing bluesman: guitarist Robert Brown (a.k.a. Smoky Babe), who stirs the soul with Boss Man Blues: Backyard Boogie: Bad Luck and Trouble: Boogie Gal: Arkansas Blues: Chicago Bound, and more! Arhoolie.
