Special offers and product promotions
(2-LP set) William Samuel McTier was born in Georgia in 1898 (according to some sources), and despite his blindness was a talented musician since early childhood. He began his recording career in 1927 for Victor Records in Atlanta and is credited with having created an entire blues sub genre by mixing the hard roots of the Delta style with the more refined East Coast style (Piedmont Blues). His unique "country blues" can be heard on the grooves of this double LP collection brought to you by Monk records.

These tracks were all recorded in Atlanta, Georgia between 1927 and 1931 and they sound really good. I don't know what cleaning-up has been done or by whom, but they've made a really good job of it. It still sounds authentic but the sound is clear and distinct so Blind Willie's singing and particularly his playing really shine out.
Quite simply, if you like the Blues, don't hesitate. This is a very good set of recordings of great performances. Very warmly recommended.
