Description
Recorded live at the influential Folk Masters concert and radio series, this kaleidoscopic, decades-spanning overview of American roots music covers Memphis barrelhouse and Harlem parlor pianists; Delta- and Piedmont-style guitarists; Kansas City and New Orleans jazz masters; hambone call-and-response and Mardi Gras Indian chants; Texas jump blues and Louisiana Creole zydeco; minstrel and jazz banjomen; street go-go bucket drummers; and railroad track–lining gandy dancers. You'll hear wild and wonderful performances of "Step It Up and Go," "John Henry," "Flipping and Flopping," "Gut Bucket Blues," "Hambone, Where You Been?" "Bluesifyin'," "Sew, Sew, Sew," "One Dime Blues," "Little Queen of Spades," "My Mind Has No Color/Doing It the Go-Go Way," and much more.

"Blues has had a considerable renascence among younger Afro Americans of late, be it the country blues, zydeco or more modern stylings. But there is no-one better than Joe Louis Walker. Still young, he is nonetheless well versed in West Coast Blues … gospel, soul and even psychedelia and this blend is shown to barnstorming effect on eight minutes of stunning musicianship, 'Bluesifyin'. This is music of the highest order—individual, imaginative and yet firmly in the tradition from which it sprung. Definitely blues for the next century."—Musical Traditions

The folk music archives that form the wellspring of these Smithsonian recordings are truly incomparable. Encompassing a wide variety of styles, they reflect the heart, soul, and backbone of the American experience as well as indigenous music from around the world. Folkways' impeccable sound and documentation does these artists proud, setting their work off as the treasure it is.
