(V/A)- The Rain Don't Fall On Me: Country Blues 1927-1952 (Mississippi Records, 2010 MSR-073)

"Compilation of [mostly] prewar country blues & gospel. Features popular artists such as Blind Willie Johnson, Gary Davis, Bukka White, and Memphis Minnie alongside unfairly less documented artists such as Sonny Boy & his Pals, Lulu Jackson & Willie Mae Williams. Could be viewed as a sequel to their Last Kind Words compilation. Some heavy meditative songs and some dance numbers too." (Vortex Records)

Hot off the record-press. Yet another fine selection of venerable vintage gemstones compiled by those good folks at Mississippi Records. God, I love what they do. Make sure to go buy their LPs. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly.

Lovely stuff this Nicolab, many thanks for your sterling efforts. Mississippi Records are the business and they made my summer last year by releasing the 5 Lomax lps on vinyl with fantastic booklets. You can taste the love! Will inevitably end up buying this too, so many thanks for the encouragement/ preview! Also 'bulldoze blues' kicks the arse out of canned heats version (goin' up the country).
