This Old World's in a Hell of a Fix / Various
This "18 Classic Blues Songs from the 1920's" CD contains some of the best, and hardest to find, pre-war blues songs ever recorded. In addition, these tracks were remastered from the finest known copies of each of the original 78 rpm records. This CD was packaged with the 2010 "Classic Blues Artwork from the 1920s Calendar" (BIM #210) which reproduced the artwork promoting these songs when they were first released. The songs coincide with artwork from the 1920's which promoted them. On the inside booklet you'll find miniature reproductions of each of the original ads. They are all part of a massive find of original 1920's Blues artwork, much of which had never been seen before.
