Description
Lead Belly's remarkably rich repertoire is encapsulated in these 18 selections, which range from the haunting "Roberta" and "In New Orleans (House of the Rising Sun)" to the driving "John Hardy," and from the bitingly satiric "The Bourgeois Blues" to the carefree "Skip to My Lou." His combined vocal/guitar prowess is also heard in "Bottle Up and Go," "Go Down Old Hannah," "De Kalb Blues," "Looky Looky Yonder/Black Betty," "Pretty Flower in Your Backyard," "I Will Be Glad When I Get Home," and "When I Was a Cowboy."

"Whether Leadbelly actually wrote the classic songs attributed to him or had the good sense and fortune to rework existing folk songs into a final form isn't particularly important. The songs he delivered into the American mainstream ('Rock Island Line,' 'Goodnight Irene,' 'Midnight Special,' and 'Take This Hammer,' among others, as well as his defining versions of folk songs 'The Gallis Pole' and 'Where Did You Sleep Last Night?') have shaped the musical landscape in myriad ways."All Music Guide
