Various - Acoustic Blues: Acoustic Blues Vol.3 (2-CD)

2-CD Digipac (6-plated) with 112-page booklet, 48 tracks. Total playing time approx. 170 minutes.

•    Third volume in this series of four 2-CD digipac sets.
•    Covering the story of acoustic blues from 1960 to 1979.
•    Country blues recordings, a total of 48 tracks, carefully re-mastered from the best sources available.
•    112-page booklet with rare photos and in-depth liner notes and bios.
•    Blues greats like Lightnin’ Hopkins, Sleepy John Estes, Mississippi John Hurt, Furry Lewis, and Louisiana Red alongside lesser know artists like Leroy Dallas, Pete Franklin, Tom Shaw, R.C. Smith, a.m.o.

In the late ‘50s, thanks in large part to young Caucasian blues enthusiasts in love with the pre-war sound and hellbent on tracking down their aging idols to relaunch their careers with fresh high fidelity product, the folk-blues movement began to build up a quick head of steam.

The living pre-war greats came back one by one like conquering heroes: Furry Lewis, Sleepy John Estes, Bukka White, Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James, Son House, all ready to ply their trade anew on the folk circuit and college campuses. They were greeted by fresh-faced young students. Another batch of previously unknown acoustic blues guitarists from the same generation who had been overlooked in pre-war times suddenly came to prominence as well, cutting their debut sides in many cases when they were in their 60s and 70s. Mance Lipscomb, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Pete Williams, and plenty more had every bit as much to offer as their celebrated forebears, even if their names hadn’t appeared on scratchy 78s.

Postwar stars Lightnin’ Hopkins, J.B. Lenoir, and the indestructible duo of Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry were only too happy to revert to their acoustic roots, since commercial hits had become a thing of the past for them. Even Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, still selling sizable amounts of records to their longtime fans, donned acoustic guitars when folk festivals called for it.

The acoustic blues movement faded somewhat during the 1970s. Yet there were some absolutely stunning acoustic blues guitar platters on the shelves during the ‘70s as well. This collection proudly surveys the best of those too.

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.

Perfekter Einstieg

Akustik Gitarre 5/15 "Diese im Booklet kurz und knapp kommentierten 201 Titel sind ein perfekter Einstieg. Mit diesen acht Alben gibt es zumindest ein kleines Glück vor dem Tod."

31 Jul 2015

Äusserst empfehlenswert

Jazz 'n' More 3/2015 "Das umtriebige deutsche Label Bear Family stellt hier vier großartig konzipierte Doppelalben vor, welche chronologisch die Geschichte der unverstärkten Bluesmusik bis heute abdecken. Äusserst empfehlenswert!"

7 Jul 2015

Akribisch kompilierte Sammlung

HiFi & Records 3/2015 "Die akribisch kompilierte Sammlung gleicht einem spannenden, unterhaltsamen und lehrreichen Saitensprung durch neun Jahrzehnte akustischer Blues-Historie."
