Description

The definitive collection of blues music from New York City and the north-eastern region from the early 1940s to the early 1960s.

Includes an 80 page book on the origins of the music and the blues scene in this  region by eminent blues writer and scholar Chris Bentley, complete with essay, rare photos, tracklisting and full sessionography.

The box set contains the down home blues of the territories of the North Eastern States that encompasses two important cities that certainly helped in the development and growth of this blues genre. Mainly from artists who were far more comfortable playing their music within the bars and out-of-town juke joints. The tough little venues that were quite different from the bigger rhythm and blues, jazz orchestrated venues that New York and Northeastern cities had established for those bigger sounds.
