Playing tracks by
The Archivist, Johnny Woods, Daddy Stovepipe, Blues Birdhead, William McCoy and more.
This show was 24th in the global blues chart.
You may have heard of some of these performers and groups but there will probably be others that are new to you. The music styles range from early jazz to country blues and popular novelties. If you like this, Part 2, you can listen to Joe on Part 1, on www.mixcloud.com/PodKast web page.
Most of the recordings are from rare 78rpm shellac records, so be ready for the surface noise. In most cases there are no master recordings and for some of the performances only one or two 78s are known to have survived intact.
