Jack White, only a few months ago, has launched, through his record label Third Man Records, the ambitious project to republish the discs of the great forgotten the blues. The transaction value is twofold and White – that is making its way with many innovative ideas not only as a musician and guitarist, but also as a producer – has grasped the potential right away. Indeed, on the one hand her label puts in trade a series of documents that have a historical value as well as musical. On the other hand, the general public can finally appreciate the archaic blues musicians such as Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell, inserting styles in a more comprehensive framework within which it is easier to encode the solutions of many contemporary guitarists and musicians.
More or less in the same direction – although the project has a profile more anthology – did the World Music Network, the UK label specializing in world music, which is now also one of the information portals of reference in the field. The label began promoting blues compilation and monographs in 2010, publishing artists essential for fans of the genre: Bessie Smith, John Lee Hoker, Howlin ‘Wolf, Leadbelly, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters etc..
In these days, and for a limited period, all disks in the array can be bought at very low prices (£ 4.49 and £ 3.49 to download). Here all the information.
