• Blues pioneer Booker “Bukka” White was one of the most expressive singers and finest slide guitarists of the original blues era. A remarkable lyricist as well, he recorded such classics as “Shake ‘Em on Down” and “Fixin’ to Die Blues” between 1930 and 1940. He was an important influence on numerous blues musicians who followed in his wake, and played an important part in the success of his cousin B.B. King’s early career. This newly remastered CD release includes Bukka White’s seminal recordings. It contains five different sessions cut by the blues giant between May 1930 and March 1940. These sensational recordings are a treasure of incalculable value, which would form the basis of Bukka White’s legend and secure his reputation as one of the greatest blues figures of that classic era.
