Third volume in this series of four 2-CD digipac sets.
Covering the story of acoustic blues from 1960 to 1979.
Country blues recordings, a total of 48 tracks, carefully re-mastered from the best sources available.
112-page booklet with rare photos and in-depth liner notes and bios.
Blues greats like Lightnin' Hopkins, Sleepy John Estes, Mississippi John Hurt, Furry Lewis, and Louisiana Red alongside lesser know artists like Leroy Dallas, Pete Franklin, Tom Shaw, R. C. Smith, a. m. o.

In the late '50s, thanks in large part to young Caucasian blues enthusiasts in love with the pre-war sound and hellbent on tracking down their aging idols to relaunch their careers with fresh high fidelity product, the folk-blues movement began to build up a quick head of steam.

The living pre-war greats came back one by one like conquering heroes: Furry Lewis, Sleepy John Estes, Bukka White, Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James, Son House, all ready to ply their trade anew on the folk circuit and college campuses. They were greeted by fresh-faced young students. Another batch of previously unknown acoustic blues guitarists from the same generation who had been overlooked in pre-war times suddenly came to prominence as well, cutting their debut sides in many cases when they were in their 60s and 70s. Mance Lipscomb, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Pete Williams, and plenty more had every bit as much to offer as their celebrated forebears, even if their names hadn't appeared on scratchy 78s.
