Subtitled: 18 Unsung Bluesmen: Rarities 1923-1929. Sub Rosa presents another volume in their "Fundamental" collection, devoted to rare and lost recordings from the '20 to the '60s. While artists such as Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Bukka White, Sleepy John Estes, Skip James, etc. became legendary in their lifetime (due in part to their discovery by the 1960s British rock scene), the musicians highlighted here, similarly to Oh, Run Into Me, But Don't Hurt Me!, are the ones that didn't become major figures, either constructed by myth or defined by history. These musicians didn't meet their destiny at a crossroad; no folk or blues label rediscovered them. They never got a second chance. They had to accept lowly jobs unrelated to their art. They survived. Most of them came from Mississippi, Memphis, St. Louis, etc. They were all highly unique, and they recorded at a young age -- a very young age in some cases -- in the '20s. They would walk into a hotel, guitar in hand, for a recording session or two. For some, we don't even know their real names, since they cut a few 78rpm sides and left for who knows where. Their traces get lost in the Great Depression. May their voices resound once more and keep the flame of our belief burning a little more, our belief in the beauty of the struggle. Presented in an 8-panel digipack with extensive notes on each of the artists. Artists include: Sylvester Weaver, Bo Weavil Jackson, Richard Rabbit Brown, Andrew Baxter, Willard Ramblin' Thomas, Luke Jordan, Buddy Boy Hawkins, Ishman Bracey, Arthur Petties, Rube Lacey, Tom Dickson, Freddie Spruell, Jesse Babyface Thomas, Willie Baker, Kid Bailey, Willie Blind Joe Reynolds, Henry Townsend, and Noah Lewis.
