Despite endless battles with racial conflicts, quite a few black artists from the southern parts of the United States have found their way to success throughout the last century. One of the most influential is undoubtedly Lead Belly. Gifted with the ability to write thought-provoking lyrics, he became a true master of the folk and blues scene. The list of artists that have paid tribute to him by covering his songs is endless, among these are Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Animals, Bruce Springsteen and Lonnie Donegan to name but a few. Lead Belly left us with a huge recorded repertoire and many of his songs have now become well-known folk and blues songs. Discover 26 of his classics songs on this 2LP Gatefold 180g vinyl edition.
