The king of country blues, Mississippi John Hurt first made his mark in the late 1920s with an influential fingerpicking technique and easygoing vocal style. Like so many of his contemporaries, he was "rediscovered" during the folk/blues boom of the early '60s, and he enjoyed a second phase of his career. The 10 tracks included on this concise-but-effective sampler come from that latter period. While these are basically re-recordings of tunes he'd made famous decades before, they still bear that Hurt mojo, providing nearly as enticing an introduction to his music as his '20s recordings.
