|Description :||A must-have compilation for anyone even remotely interested in the blues, this collection of rare, largely unheard music from the pre-war South is a real reminder of the true spirit and meaning of this old and mythic form of American folk. Guy Mark Hinant of Sub Rosa has done a wonderful job of collecting, researching, and reporting on these tracks, all of which were recorded at 78 rpms and originally released at the time of their creations on scattered labels. Many of these records have floated out into the realm of obscurity and have only recently been discovered again, some of them existing as sole remaining copies, reproduced and presented here for the first time. Hinant wanted to highlight more of the unknown artists of the area who were never given a second chance, until now that is. 'I'm Going Where the Water Drinks Like Wine' is the stories of these unknown men (the birth names of some of the performers is still a mystery) and their struggles, loves, frustrations and disappointments. And it's these stories as presented by Hinant that makes the disc really special. We're reminded of the real meanings of the blues, not only through the lyrics and forms, but through the poor conditions in which the music was captured and in the tragic lifestyles some of these folks led. These sessions took place in office buildings, some in hotels. One artist is believed to have been a hobo...and my favorite part about the compilation is that it often offers two tracks (both sides of the 78s) from an artist/session to give the listener a broader sense of each singer's own unique style. |
