Lead Belly - Smithsonian Folkways Recordings
Click to review

With his 12-string Stella guitar, Lead Belly sang out a cornucopia of songs that included his classics The Midnight Special, Irene, The Bourgeois Blues and many more, which in turn have been covered by musical notables such as The Beach Boys, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison, Nirvana, Odetta, Little Richard, Pete Seeger, Frank Sinatra, and Tom Waits. Lead Belly: The Smithsonian Folkways Collection brings us the story of the man as well as the musician. This first career-spanning boxed set dedicated to the American music icon features: 5 discs, 108 tracks (16 unreleased), 5 hours of music, historic photos, extensive notes, and 140-page book.
