I found some ragtime and blues from the 1920s and 1930s. I know nothing about the blues. It’s a genre that just escaped my mind, so I’ve never sought it out. I wasn’t exactly looking for this either but great things have a way of falling into my lap.
Ragtime Millionaire – William Moore
You Gonna Quit Me Blues – Blind Blake
This album features songs by Tampa Red, Carl Martin and other including Blind Blake who is often referred to as the King of Ragtime Guitar. Supposedly, only one photograph of this guy exists. Talk about being a breath away from being a ghost.
These tracks were obviously recorded from vinyl. You can hear the crackling all throughout the songs.
