12 of the finest tracks culled from ‘The Rough Guide to Leadbelly’ on 180 gram vinyl. The LP includes a download card allowing you to download the entire album as well as a bonus album entitled ‘Folk & Blues Legends’. The tracks have been lovingly remastered using pioneering restoration techniques. Leadbelly’s enormous rural-blues repertoire and thrilling twelve-string guitar playing led the US folk revival and has influenced a huge range of artists from the Beach Boys to Led Zeppelin. His convict past gave an air of unpredictable danger to his live performances but it is his unparalleled treasury of songs and intense singing style that remains undimmed.
