Lead Belly – A Celebration – Classic Sides 1934-1944 – LP


SKU: JSP 11003 - LP Categories: ,


Leadbelly remains an American musical icon. His style was both hardcore Country Blues and Songster/Folk tradition. This gives him that rare thing-a genre busting appeal even so many years after his death, with a wider public knowledgeable and interested in his life and music. This classic early material is both musically stunning and historically important-a rare combination.
