Once again, we owe thanks to Monk Records. This Italian label has been spitting out represses of some of the best early American Blues artists for years, including Blind Blake. This sealed copy includes 18 phenomenal tracks, an absolute gem.
Recorded originally for release on Warner Bro. Records, these early 1940′s recordings have been released on Moses Asch Folkways Records. There are 10 tracks in total, all songs written by Woody Guthrie. Both the record and cover are in excellent condition. Recorded during the late 50′s as the American Folk music revival was just getting underway, Odetta and The Blues was released in 1962. All of the songs are classic, including covers of Bessie Smith’s “Weeping Willow” and “Nobody Knows You”. The cover has slight ware on the front, with all corners and edges in good shape. The record is in great condition.
