The earliest days of blues music has its roots in
the deep South region of the United States. It was
there that the likes of Robert Johnson, Charley
Patton, Big Bill Broonzy, and innumerable
other performers cut their teeth, performing and
recording largely across the states of Tennessee,
Mississippi, and various other deep Southern
states, gradually spreading to its most famed
hometown of Chicago, Illinois.
Oft forgotten in these stories is that of the
Carolinas, and the surrounding Atlantic Coast.
Frequently overshadowed by their Memphis,
Chicago, and Mississippi contemporaries, it's
an area that contains some of the blues' oldest
traditions. This region was home to major
traditional blues players like Blind Blake,
Tampa Red, and Sam Butler, among many others,
and are collected here in the tracks of
Guitar Wizards: 1926-1935.
