Recording information: Atlanta, GA (1950).
This set from Sony reissues the Blind Willie McTell Regal recordings, cut in 1950 and previously issued on Biograph with a different cover but the same track sequence. Highlights among the 20 remastered tracks are the Delta blues classics "Brown Skin Woman," "A to Z Blues," and two takes each of "Pal of Mine" and "Sending Up My Timber." This disc is missing a few crucial tunes but is still recommended to anyone who has the slightest interest in early American acoustic blues. ~ Al Campbell
