Country Blues, his first recording for the legendary Tradition label recorded in 1959, was the first recording to showcase Lightnin' in his true element and on his own terms a master songwriter alone with just his voice and guitar, a direct contrast to his early electric recordings. To this day it remains as one of the greatest examples of pure folk blues ever recorded. First of all, Lightnin' is the man. Now that we've established that, lets go on to this particular album.

This record purchased Jan 2019. VG / VG plays ok but is pretty dull sounding. Could be manufacturing issue or played out by previous owner. It is unlike most of my other Lightnin' LPs which are all second hand and some well played.
