As one of Our Recommendations and Recommended Recordings, we recommend Leroy Carr & Scrapper Blackwell When The Sun Goes Down: 1934-1941, by Leroy Carr & Scrapper Blackwell, on JSP Records.
Although they are not well known today, the duo of Leroy Carr (1905-1935) and Scrapper Blackwell (1903-1962) was one of the leading blues acts of the late 1920’s and early 1930’s.
They were extremely influential among American blues musicians. As just one example, Robert Johnson was a fan of Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell and tried to model his guitar playing on Leroy Carr’s piano style.
This is a comprehensive collection with 91 sides included. The remastering is well done and the sound is very good for recordings of this era.
