Nothing but ......

In 1990 this album was released in the famous "Roots 'n' Blues" series. It is a wonderful compilation that focuses on one of the important original functions of the blues: Tell people the news! Hence the title of the album:
"News & The Blues: Telling Like It Is".
The album holds 20 recordings by legends as Bessie Smith, Victoria Spivey, Memphis Minnie, Big Bill Broonzy, Charlie Patton, Bukka White, etc.
All the recordings are originals and date between 1927 and 1953. Tracks 19 (Homer Harris - 1946) and 20 (Willie "Long Time" Smith" - 1947) are previously unissued recordings. An absolute 'must have' for anyone who is into old original blues!
