Story

Louisiana delta native Huddie “Lead Belly” Ledbetter is the master of twelve-string blues guitar. After killing a man in a fight for a woman’s heart and ending up in prison, Lead Belly earned early release by singing for his prison-mates and penning a song for the governor. Folklorists John and Alan Lomax brought Lead Belly to the attention of Ivy Leaguers and a European audience — since then, his songs have been widely covered by artists like Elvis, Nirvana, Johnny Cash, and the Grateful Dead. This collection of his best work features original recordings, remastered by Third Man Records for a limited 12” vinyl 180gm pressing, housed in a tip-on jacket with a soft touch finish.
