In 1960, the seminal book Blues Fell This Morning by Paul Oliver was published. A renowned scholar dedicated to researching African-American music (as well as architectural history), the book's influence on the British blues boom (Mayall, Clapton, Beck, Page, etc.) that followed is incalculable. This collection is intended as both a celebration and companion piece of this great work. It contains 103 fully remastered tracks of classic old-time blues from all the greats: Lonnie Johnson, Bukka White, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Charley Patton, Lucille Bogan, Mississippi John Hurt, Roosevelt Sykes, Josh White, Blind Willie McTell and many more. You also get an 80-page book detailing every track, its performer, its lyrics and its place in the history of the blues, as well as reproductions of rare photos, posters and memorabilia.
