Jail House Blues / Various
This "16 Classic Blues Songs from the 1920's" CD contains some of thebest, and hardest to find, Pre-War Blues songs ever recorded. The fifth volume features "Jail House Blues" by Crying Sam Collins and 15 other classic blues songs by other great blues sings including Blind Blake, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Ida Cox, Texas Alexander, Ma Rainey, Rube Lacey and others. This CD was packaged with the 2008 "Classic Blues Artwork from the 1920s Calendar" (BIM #208) which reproduced the artwork promoting these songs when they were first released.
