‘Blues Masters: The Essential History Of The Blues’ features rare performances and historical footage tracing the development of this unique American music form. Born on the plantations of the Mississippi Delta the blues is America’s root music. Few performances of the early masters were ever captured on film but those that were and feature on this DVD are entertaining and profoundly insightful. Contains the only known performance of Leadbelly.
