Whether Leadbelly actually wrote the classic songs attributed to him or had the good sense and fortune to rework existing folk songs into a final form isn't particularly important. The songs he delivered into the American mainstream ("Rock Island Line," "Goodnight Irene," "Midnight Special," "Take This Hammer," among others) have shaped the musical landscape in myriad ways. This collection from Snapper Records functions as a decent introduction to Leadbelly, although there is a lot more to his legacy than these songs.
