The title of this compilation, Before the Blues, may be a deceiving one, particularly as it comes from Yazoo Records, a label that specializes in the earliest music of the genre. While the performances here date back to the first commercial recordings (made during the mid-'20s), the blues, as a musical form, was probably born a good 20 years earlier, at the turn of the century. Maintaining a looser format than many of their compilations, Before the Blues follows the music from the juke joint on a Saturday night to church the next morning. Included are tracks from some of the most popular.

The blues, for the most part, was a quintessential black music form as it developed out of the scorched dry plantation fields of the post- Civil War Jim Crow South, out of the moans and groans of the black church Sunday and out of the hard drinking, hard fighting, hard loving, hard partying Saturday night acoustic music (had to, no electricity) night before.

  • It's important to clarify what "Before The Blues" means -- these are songs (3 volumes worth) selected because they represent pre-blues 19th century song styles -- not because they're recordings made "before the blues" came about. Parlor songs, work songs, ballads with roots in England, sermons -- I believe all 3 volumes of this set are essential listening. Each disc comes with a booklet about the artists, the songs and source material. It's one of my favorite Yazoo compilations and after 20 years I've never grown tired of it. It's more melodic than most strictly "blues" CDs, and refreshingly diverse.
