Fantastic to have found two strong Blake tunes and in not too bad condition, from the samples. Both seem to feature him drumming on the guitar. Thanks for the heads up.

Undoubtedly Blake of course but actually very different from anything else he released.

Awesome!:)  I came across this great label for the first time a couple of weeks ago when I picked up a copy of "Violin, Sing The Blues For Me".   They put out some great stuff!

Thanks for the heads up, SleepyJohn. Pretty great that we now have all Blake's recordings. Or should I say known recordings? Maybe they'll just keep finding them.

Thanks, too, to Old Hat and the collectors who share these records when they find them, rather than hoarding them in their collector's lairs like the mad scientists we know they really are.

Did Blake drum on the guitar top on any other recordings? I can't think of any right now but I don't listen to him as often as others here might so let us know.

JSP's Blind Blake All The Published Sides & the Document Complete sets are now obsolete. Nice problem to have. It's also extremely cool that it happened this year, the year when his final times and resting place became known, and the grave soon to be marked appropriately.

Miss Emma Liza is a fascinating track. Turns my understanding of Blake on it's head! I can't wait to hear the whole thing.

What to say?

The question that springs immediately to my mind is: "When and where will they be issued on CD?"

IIRC, when Marshall first came into possession of the trunk of records, the plan was to re-issue the collection as a set of CDs, but that didn't happen. My guess is that it will probably be released as part of an anthology at some point, possible by John T like unezrider said.

I was not that much impressed with the music on the previously found Blind Blake Paramount (Sun to Sun/ Night and Day Blues), but from what little I heard of the last missing and now wondrously unearthed Pm 13115, this is top material, just the right thing to be excited about!

Hope to hear the whole thing soon, remastered by Rich Nevins.
