"This item is part of the Folkways archives. The original liner notes from the LP are included."

Isolated by its surrounding hills, Atlanta developed a blues style described as "the summation of country Georgia music." The city's strummed and simple style retained its local flavor until the 1930s, and this recording captures the distinctive sound of Atlanta blues in its heyday.
