Prior to that year, African-Americans were represented on cylinders and records, but they were primarily 'coon songs' or traditional themes. Mamie Smith started a craze alright, one which led to a glut of recordings by similar female singers in what we now call the 'classic' period.
After the success found with Black record buyers in many Southern states, the labels organized 'field trips' where a producer would travel to locations like Atlanta, Dallas, and other cities, after advertising in newspapers that they were looking for talent, and set forth recording the artists that descended on The Hand Of John L. Sullivan - Flogging Molly - Life Is Good. Charlie McCoy yet another of Memphis Minnie's husbands - mentioned in the Columbia set is especially strong on "You Gonna Need Me" and is joined by some fine fiddle work in a string band setting.
Bo Carter's family, the Mississippi Sheiks, appear with "She's A Bad Girl," another string band tune with hilarious lyrics including the memorable line "there's a girl named Nell, when she walks down the street she don't smell so well" - worth the price for the laughs alone!
Buddy Moss, from Atlanta, and a cohort of other Atlanta artists from this, and Volume 2 in the series, leaves a wonderful "Struggle Buggie," full of great guitar runs and some down-home percussion that re-emerged II. About To Crash - Dream Theater - Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence later with the techniques used by Peck Curtis, who assisted Rice Miller Sonny Boy Williamson 2 on his stellar Trumpet sides.
Sylvester Weaver, another from a long line of artists from the Atlanta area, is fine on "Chitlin' Rag Blues," and the one-of-a-kind vocal styling of Peter 'Doc' Clayton shows up in "Roaming Gambler," with Clayton telling of his penchant for games of chance.
Their strong performances are no less important to the rich fabric of recorded Blues from the earlier years in the 20th century, and the folks at Catfish have succeeded with all three discs in this set.
Choosing excellent examples of differing Blues styles with remarkable sound quality, detailed liner notes from Dave Moore, and lengthy playing time on this CD as well, all three volumes will attract those looking for a primer in early Blues as well as those more versed and wanting to truss out their collections with some seldom heard artists.
