August 10, 1920 was a crucial day for the future of the blues. That’s when Mamie Smith recorded her groundbreaking Crazy Blues for OKeh Records. Her glamorous approach to the music was solidly based in the vaudeville tradition, the accompaniment dominated by jazzy horns and flowery piano.

The next big trend to emerge a little later in the decade revolved around blues guitarists, virtually all of them originally hailing from the rural South, their approach closely related to field hollers and work songs. Many were veritable virtuosos on their instruments. Lonnie Johnson, Blind Willie McTell, Blind Blake, and Skip James mapped out the guitar-dominated long-term future of the idiom with every 78 they released. These giants made their nimble fretwork heard over the cacophonous din inside the rowdy juke joints where they plied their trade by fretting their instruments with a slide or bottleneck. They achieved a fluid, crying sound on their acoustic axes, or pounded the hell out of their boxes with forceful chording. Performers popular enough to afford them acquired flashy steel-bodied National guitars that resonated louder than standard models.

Blind Lemon Jefferson proved a sensation with rural blacks after he was discovered in Texas in 1925 or ’26, underscoring the commercial potential of downhome blues. The crushing poverty of the Depression brought the first boom of blues recording to an abrupt halt at the dawn of the 1930s. But the first two decades of recorded blues were a veritable goldmine of acoustic guitar brilliance. This collection offers a splendid cross-section of the very best.

Acoustic Blues, The Definte Collection

The Roots Of It All

In addition to this standard work, blues researcher Bill Dahl now has the history of acoustic blues. From the commercial beginnings in the early 1920s to the present day. Beyond the boundaries of the catalogues of individual record companies, Bear Family presents the most important recordings on four double CDs in chronological order.

Carefully mastered partly from original shellac plates and later from the best analog and digital sources. The accompanying books, each with about 80 pages, provide extensive liner notes, wonderful illustrations and often rare photos and thoroughly researched discographic information.

From the beginnings in the 1920s

This series documents the fascinating history of the acoustic blues guitar from its beginnings in the 1920s and 1930s.

When the recording industry, still in its infancy, made extensive recordings with blues musicians from the South (often in hectic temporary recording studios in hotel rooms and other acoustically acceptable locations), to the present day.

Revival of Country Blues

Each of the double CDs in this series covers a specific era of blues played on acoustic instruments.
