Release Date:06/16/2017;Notes:Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing housed in tip-on jacket with soft touch finish. Louisiana delta native Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter is the master of twelve-string blues guitar. His story is one of high-highs and low-lows, from serving stints in prison after killing a man in a fight for a woman's heart, but then eventually earning early release by entertaining his fellow prison-mates and penning a song for the governor, thus cementing his reputation of singing his way out of prison. Folklorists John and Alan Lomax were early supporters that brought Lead Belly to the attention of Ivy Leaguers as well as a European audience. His songs have been widely covered by artists such as Elvis, Nirvana, Johnny Cash, and the Grateful Dead.;Track List:1. Mr. Tom Hughes' Town;2. C. C. Rider;3. You Can't Lose Me Charlie;4.
