Preacher and cat house pianist, Skip James personifies the contradictions that seem to permeate the blues. He was born Nehemiah James in 1902 in Bentonia MS. His fathe was - depending on who you believe, either a minister or a bootlegger. What is agreed is that James graduated from high school, and learned to play the guitar from the locally famous Henry Stuckey. The young Skip established himself as a traveling bluesman, playing work camps, farms and whorehouses. At this time, it seems, he was also a gambler. In late 1930 Skip was spotted by H C Speir - a talent scout for Paramount records, and Skip was despatched to their Grafton, Wisconsin studios. By this time, the company was near collapse. Even in good times was not Paramount's policy to record so many sides with an untried artist. Either James came cheap, or that he was seen as a musical prodigy who would save the company. In the event, the James sides sold badly - a few were not even released, and on their dissolution, Paramount destroyed all but a few masters, so that unissued material was lost. This, incidentally, also explains the poor quality of Paramount reissues - all the material is transcribed from poorly made 78rpm discs. Skip James' disillusion at being unpaid (Paramount might never have intended to pay him - they knew closure was imminent) was so great that he ceased working in the blues. He formed a Gospel group, the Dallas Texas Jubilee Singers to support his father, who now certainly was a preacher. In 1932 he was himself ordained as a Baptist minister, his career as a bluesman, he must have thought, now behind him. In 1964, James was coaxed from a hospital bed to perform at the Newport Folk Festival. The Blues Revival had found him. He died in 1969 of the cancer for which he had been hospitalized. Also featured are Son House, Bukka White, and Tommy Johnson - all Blues Stalwarts who made their own unique contribution to the genre.

Violin, Sing The Blues For Me: African-American Fiddlers 1926-1949

Violin, Sing The Blues For Me: African-American Fiddlers 1926-1949 Lowest new price: $12.22
Lowest used price: $6.15
Brand: Old Hat Ent.

The guitar gets the ink, but the violin was hugely important in the development of early blues, its crying vibratos and sliding notes creating a dramatic and soulful sound. Here are 24 examples of blues violin at its best, all documented with a 32-page booklet; includes Stealin' Blues Cow Cow Davenport; Baby Please Don't Go Joe Williams' Washboard Blues Singers; Violin Blues Johnson Boys; Right Now Blues Frank Stokes; Ted's Stomp Louie Bluie & Ted Bogan; The Moore Girl Andrew & Jim Baxter; Salty Dog Booker Orchestra, and more.

Nearly essential for anyone interested in old-time music, Violin, Sing the Blues for Me may be quite simply the best single-disc anthology of the early 20th century black string-band movement available today. The emphasis here is on the bluesy fiddle playing heard between 1926 and 1949, but the music boasts reams of diverse styles and playing that is simply impossible to pigeonhole. Andrew Baxter milks his fiddle for all its plaintive worth against brother Jim's guitar on "K.C. Railroad Blues," the Mississippi Mud Steppers' "Alma Waltz" is as sublime as they come (perhaps the greatest side ever recorded to feature a banjo-mandolin), and there are plenty of other tracks featuring the now-forgotten wail of the blues violin. But the lively tunes steal the show here: the Mobile Strugglers's previously unissued "Memphis Blues" from 1949 is a classic breakdown; the Tennessee Chocolate Drops's "Vine Street Drag" (featuring the fast fiddling of Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong) showcases some true violin virtuosity; and the Memphis Jug Band's "Memphis Shakedown" is a tour de force of energy and great playing. Truth is, there's not a weak track here, and the copious liner notes will keep you busy long after the CD has played out. If you want to hear the roots of the blues, don't pass this disc up. --Jason Verlinde
