Essential Recordings 2CD

Lead Belly was a towering presence in music, bestriding many musical styles and genres.
Sometimes simply regarded as a Bluesman, his music in fact transcended all racial and musical boundaries, and his vast repertoire of songs encompassed songs from the American Folk tradition, Blues, Gospel, Chain Gang songs, Spirituals and Protest songs.
His greatest recordings are all included in this essential double disc collection.
