Do any of you guys like his music? He's one of my personal favorites. I play lots of his songs too.

I never heard Edward Clayborn's music but I think he used slide and I'm very curious, could you give us some extract of his music?

He was a slide genius.

I have his "complete recorded works", but you can also listen some of his tracks on www.pandora.com

Very recommended.

Hi all,
The JSP set, "Blind Willie Johnson And The Guitar Evangelists" includes, in addition to all Blind Willie Johnson's recordings, all of Edward W. Clayborn's, and the price is certainly right.  Clayborn was a wonderful player, as Lone Wolf states.
All best,
Johnm

i would hesitate to call him a one trick pony, but he definitely does have a limited amount of styles and song structures (not to say he lacks in skill or talent, i still have him on my ipod).  but i still shelled out the money for his document cd, before i realised jsp had a set that filled in every gap imaginable (i hate it when these things happen). anyways, any other opinions, suggestions?  has any one heard his remaining recordings on the taggart set?

while we're on the subject of guitar evangelists, does anyone have any recomendations regarding blind joe taggart?  i find his recordings a little hard to tread, although that one paramount that he did i really like (been listening all the day/ going to rest where jesus is).

His complete Recorded works is outstanding and the only album you'll ever need of his recordings.

Here is a link to some 30-second samples of his music:

downthedirtroad,

i only have blind joe taggart vol. 1 from document but some of the absolute standouts are the blues sides

coal river blues
fourteenth st women

and the 'guitar evangeslist' sides

god's gonna separate the wheat from the tares
take your burden to the lord and leave it there
the storm is passing over
there's a hand writing on the wall (with a very young josh white)
religion is something within you

along of course with the two you mention.

i love the way on some of his tracks he would really rrrrrrrrroll his r's. like when he sings 'courrrage my soul, as we journey on' on the storm is passing over or 'gods gonna separrrate the wheat from the tares hallelleu'.

i can't think of another singer of the time who did this so well.
Cheerybye,
David C

Take a listen to Joseph Spence's "Out On The Rolling Sea" And You'll Hear Some "R" Rolling.

i'll look it out.

i love his "singing" but i'm usually too busy dancing too pay much attention to anything other than his playing. i think his 1958 folkways record has to be one of the greatest albums ever, it's just solid gold from start to finish.

thanks for the tips on blind joe taggart.  it made easier listening. 

However, has anyone had the opportunity to hear the second volume of blind joe taggart on document (which coincidentially, includes cuts from Rev. Clayborn).  it seems to coincide with the lion's share of his paramount sides, so it might make for rough listening.
