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.
