Overview

For the past few years, Blues Images of Oregon has put out a blues calendar featuring the original sleeve artwork from vintage 1920s blues 78s, accompanied by a CD of the songs selected. This 2006 installment has 16 songs (no sleeve art has survived for four of the songs), including a pair of Skip James gems, "Devil Got My Woman" and "Cypress Grove Blues"; Leroy Carr's classic "Christmas in Jail" (guess which month features this song...); and King Solomon Hill's odd "The Gone Dead Train"; among others. The month-by-month artwork of the calendar itself opens a window on the cultural marketing of these 78s, as well as the contemporary perception of the artists who recorded them, while the disc functions as a varied introduction to the world of 1920s commercial country blues.
