Jesse Fuller was an extraordinary blues and folk performer born in Georgia in 1896. He was an accomplished guitarist but had never made a living as a musician, working on railroads and in shipyards and steelworks through to the 1950s. This comprehensive 43-track set includes tracks from the albums Working On The Railroad for World Song, Frisco Bound! on the Cavalier label, and Jazz, Folk Songs, Spirituals & Blues and Sings And Plays Jazz, Folk Songs, Spirituals & Blues for Good Time Jazz. Its a marvellous showcase for his remarkable talent as a musician, songwriter and raconteur who proved highly influential on later luminaries such as Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and Paul McCartney.
Reviews For San Francisco Bay Blues 1954-61 (2CD)
Blues & Rhythm Issue 342 Phil Wight
"I enjoyed this set immensely, if you are interested in the music of the multi-talented Jesse Fuller and don't have much of this material then I urge you to explore this set. Well worth the money"
