I’m Going Where The Water Drinks Like Wine [coll] – [Sub Rosa]
Full title: I’m Going Where The Water Drinks Like Wine:18 Unsung Bluesmen 1923-1929
Very, very old and rare recordings from African-American men whose 78rpm recordings survived. Rough sound quality, but with poignant troubles and joy shining through. Interesting guitar and some fiddle and harmonica accompany the vocals.
Short biographies of each musician are on the back cover and help us understand this music. Words are not always intelligible.
Worth a listen, musical interest goes beyond the historical context.
