Selected as an Outstanding Folk Recording by the Library of Congress' American Folklife Center, this CD follows in the tradition of field recordings conducted by Library of Congress folklorists of decades past. Producer Louis Guida scoured the fields, hills, front porches, prisons, and juke joints of Arkansas to record these blues performances in 1976. Most tracks are downhome guitar blues, most notably by the crippled Pine Bluff singer who plays slide guitar with a butter knife, CeDell Davis. 8 other performers are featured, including Cummins Prison inmate Reola Jackson, whose a cappella moan was recorded while a prison door slams in the background.
