Tracing the origins of the blues is a problematic and somewhat theoretical venture, because the music is an oral, not a written, tradition. BROKE, BLACK & BLUE tries to follow the development of recorded blues during its first 20 odd years. In most cases we have avoided its greatest stars by featuring the lesser known but no less deserving artists, from the obscure to the previously unreleased. Among the many included here are BLIND BLAKE, BARBECUE BOB, MISSISSIPPI JOHN HURT, FRANK STOKES, TOMMY JOHNSON, VICTORIA SPIVEY, SON HOUSE, KOKOMO ARNOLD, JAZZ GILLUM and CRIPPLE CLARENCE LOFTON. There is also plenty of previously unreleased material which will be of great interest to collectors and historians. 100 tracks, over four hours of music, 44 page illustrated booklet.
