Editorial Review:

Product Description:
The ghostly sound of Skip James' voice is as haunting as the mist over the Mississippi Delta, and it is these recordings-dating from 1930 and long hard-to-find in this country-that are the source of his legend. This 18-track album marks the first appearance of such classics as Devil Got My Woman; I'm So Glad; 32-20 Blues; Cypress Grove Blues, and many more-absolutely essential.

Amazon.com:
With an unmistakable falsetto delivery, Skip James created some of history's eeriest blues records. His blues sounds dark and mysterious, using odd tunings, structures, and rhythms, and exploring gloomy lyrical themes. Unlike other bluesmen of the day, James's music was personal and bleak, played for his own emotional release and not for purposes of entertainment. "Devil Got My Woman," "Hard Time Killin' Floor Blues," "Hard Luck Child," and "Special Rider Blues" convey sorrow and misery like few others can. Uptempo numbers such as the classic "I'm So Glad" and "Drunken Spree," which resembles the hillbilly traditional "Late Last Night," showcase his forceful guitar picking while rags "Little Cow and Calf" and the jumpy "How Long 'Buck'" feature his unique piano work. --Marc Greilsamer
