Skip James-Jesus Is A Mighty Good Leader

  • Sale
  • Regular price €19.99

Born in Bentonia, Mississippi in 1902, Skip James began recording for Paramount in Grafton, WI in the 1930s after showcasing his unmistakable talent in a series of auditions in Jackson, Mississippi.

Particularly interesting was his three finger picking technique, his high pitch voice and the rural blues tales that he put in music for a subgenre of blues that was later called the "Bentonia school".

This LP includes some of his rarest early tunes from those lost 78 rpms from the Grafton period.
