The notes on the back of this CD mention that all of the 19 cuts are unissued except for two. Once I put this CD on I found out why. The is undoubtedly one of the worst blues CDs I’ve ever heard. Almost every song has an instrument out of tune, whether it’s J.B. Hutto’s guitar, the other guitar, or the bass. How any producer could allow this is beyond belief. Didn’t anyone at these sessions have ears? Did they think they could fix it in the mix?
There is no excuse for this and nothing can make up for it. Guitar tuners are made for a reason. So are ears. Delmark should be ashamed of themselves for releasing this one.
