Product Description:

Includes liner notes by "Chicago" Kerry Kudlacek.
BOURGEOIS BLUES is the companion volume to DEFENSE BLUES: GOLDEN CLASSICS PART TWO, part of Collectables Records' extensive folk-blues reissue series. Though these budget-priced compilations are brief (with13 tracks on this volume), together the two discs provide a representative introduction to one of the 20th century's most unique talents.
This volume begins with the powerful title track, one of Leadbelly's most political songs, and continues through traditional folk ballads like "The Gallis Pole," rollicking blues like "Big Fat Woman," and story songs like "Julie Ann Johnson," showcasing Leadbelly's immense versatility, both as a singer and as one of the greatest 12-string guitarists ever known. Note: This album should not be confused with the release BOURGEOIS BLUES: THE LEADBELLY LEGACY PART TWO on Smithsonian/Folkways.
