Skip James - The Complete 1931 Sessions
Record Store Day Black Friday 2022
Skip James was a Delta blues artist from Mississippi. Known for his career during the Great Depression and subsequent decades, he was "rediscovered" and became much more widely recognized during the 1960's when he was in very poor health nearing the end of his life. His playing style was primarily in a minor key, featuring complex fingerpicking. After years of being out of print, The Complete 1931 Sessions, taken from James' Paramount recordings, will be remastered and reissued by ORG Music for RSD Black Friday on color vinyl. The reissue features new artwork and liner notes by author Larry Jaffee. The compilation is made up of some of the earliest years of the artist's career and showcases the astounding talent he possessed from the very beginning.
