Skip James is a classic artist in the history of the Delta Blues. He's a phenominal guitarist, a good pianist, and a haunting singer. He is also a major inspiration on Robert Johnson. This disc is, however, a sub-par compilation, ignoring James' better 30's recordings in favor of his 60's comeback material. This is understandable because the 60's material has slightly better sound quality. The major problem is that there is no way to tell (until the disc is already bought that is) which recordings you're getting. Expecting the (in my opinion) superior earlier work I bought it, and was greatly disappointed. Also there are problems with the track sequencing, which lists the wrong songs in the wrong order on the back of the cd (a stupid mistake for a label if it wants to compete these days). Overall, although the music is still good, this was a very frustrating buy for me. Buy the complete early recordings instead.
