Skip James - Hard Time Killing Floor Blues
Awesome dark moody blues. Just Skip James fingerpickin' his guitar. He's got a great haunting voice. Half or so of these songs were written by James in 1931 the others were new when this was recorded in 1964 and the quality is great. My favorite type of blues right here. Solitude. Depression era Delta Blues.
Fun Facts: Cream covered James' song "I'm So Glad". Which is not on this album.
