Blind Boy Fuller - Truckin' My Blues Away

This CD was my first introduction to Blind Boy Fuller, to Piedmont blues, to pre-war blues in general. As it often happens with the first impressions, it was the strongest one. I've heard a lot of old blues since - the raw power of Charlie Patton, the effortless virtuosity of Blind Blake, the encyclopedic repertoire of Gary Davis - but Fuller remains my favorite. Pigmeat and the title track still make me jump, and Walking My Troubles Away still gives me chills, just like it did the first time I heard them almost fifteen years ago. I listened to it over and over, trying to figure out how many guitar players are there on this record. Now I know it's just one, the one and only Blind Boy Fuller.
Of course, an additional bonus is the cover by Robert Crumb.
