You hear these songs, and they're incredibly moving. But when we talk about it as being raw or authentic, it discounts just how hard this stuff was to play and how musically sophisticated and innovative it was. There's a sense of almost remarginalizing it by talking about it as this primitive music that sprung up in the cotton fields, when in fact, it's incredibly skilled and impressive music - Amanda Petrusich, author of Do Not Sell at Any Price: The Wild, Obsessive Hunt for the World's Rarest 78 rpm Records

Hi all,
I've attached a version of "Red River Blues" by the Mississippi musician Roosevelt Holts.  It is from his album, "The Franklinton Muscatel Society".  Unfortunately, the is very little of his recorded repertoire up on youtube, but at least you can listen to it via the .mp3.
All best,
