Masters of Memphis Blues contains the complete early recordings (1928-1935) of important artists like Furry Lewis and Robert Wilkins with selections from the recordings of Gus Cannon and Frank Stokes, as well as lesser known artists like Little Buddy Doyle and Allen Shaw.
The remastering is well done; the sound is very good for recordings of this era.

Remember Me – by the Reverend Robert Wilkins.
This CD was recorded 1969 and 1970. Reverend Wilkins was in his 70’s when these tracks were recorded but his voice had held up well and his guitar skills were undiminished.
If you’re in Memphis you might want to pay a visit to Furry Lewis’ grave in Hollywood Cemetery.
