Release Date:03/16/2018;Notes:Across the works of Americana traditionalists like Ry Cooder and John Fahey, earnest folkies like Bruce Cockburn and Gillian Welch, and even blues-fusion weirdos like Beck, the sounds and influence of Mississippi John Hurt can be felt. Among his Delta Blues peers Hurt stood out equally for his gentle and genial demeanor as his distinct style of blues guitar, which heavily emphasized finger-picking and lyrical nuance, and was intended for dancing to. A legend of the genre that might have been condemned to obscurity if not for the folk revival of the 1960s, which introduced a wider audience to him and his songs, which would be covered by the likes of Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia, Taj Mahal, and others. Hurt's most definitive works can be traced back to 1928, when he recorded several singles for Okeh Records, where he would also come into the acquaintance of other blues legends like Blind Lemon Jefferson and Bessie Smith. These recordings would later become signature songs of his, such as "Spike Driver Blues", "Stack O' Lee Blues" and "Avalon Blues." The singles were not commercially successful at the time, but attracted greater success decades later, when a younger generation of blues and folk fans would embrace him, allowing him to appear on The Tonight Show, at the Newport Folk Festival, and tour and perform until his death in 1966. The 1928 Sessions, which started it all for Mississippi John, are now compiled here in their entirety.;Track List:1. Got the Blues Can't Be Satisfied;2. Louis Collins;3. Blue Harvest Blues;4.
