The Legendary 1963 Piedmont sides of Mississippi John Hurt, his first since his influential 1928 recordings for the Okeh label. "Folk Songs And Blues" was recorded immediately after Hurt's "rediscovery" on March 24, 26, 29 and April 2, 1963 and released later that year. This album features many of his best known songs including "Candy Man Blues", "Salty Dog", "Spike Driver Blues", "Louis Collins", "Spanish Fandango" and "Avalon Blues." Mississippi John accompanies his gentle, mellow singing with acoustic guitar and, on one tune, harmonica. Enclosed insert with updated liner notes by Hurt biographer Philip R. Ratcliffe. Deluxe 180 gram vinyl, original tip-on jacket in resealable poly bag.
