God Don’t Like It [coll] – [Document]

Document Records is on the path of putting *nearly every* American blues, old time, string band, jug band, hokum, and black gospel 78 record from the 20s thru the 50s back into print on their collections and single artist chronologies. They are now promoting their catalog with samplers, this being the first of them. There is no overarching theme here, as all the genres they deal with seem to be addressed. What’s nice is that they are featuring some pretty obscure acts here, even though they also have extensive back catalogs on better known artists. Lightnin’ Hopkins, Big Joe Williams, Son House, Roosevelt Sykes and the Memphis Jug Band are probably the best-known on this release, but Document has always relished more unsung artists — Three Stripped Gears, Hightower’s Night Hawks, and Hattie Ellis with Cowboy Jack Ramsey being just a few of the mysterious folks heard. The Document strategy is to offer up the basic details: who, what, where, when… and not fuss too much with remastering. We salute their ambition and hope they have more fiery sermons from Elder Johnson and weirdos like George Davis with his “Flesh Crawling Blues”. (( crimes ))
