Mississippi John Hurt

Mississippi John Hurt, who first recorded in 1928, was 'rediscovered' in the 1960s, when he became a folk festival favorite. He was a bluesman, but his gentle singing and intricate finger-picked guitar made him wholly different from other Mississippi players from his era. The 1963 recordings on this disc are culled from his first late-career sessions, and include many of his best-loved songs.
