Mississippi John Hurt – Memorial Anthology

Memorial Anthology

John Hurt played a different breed of blues from Delta stalwarts like Son House and Robert Johnson. Hurt was an all-around songster, and his simple guitar and downhome voice were infectious. This two-CD set is a fine collection of Hurt’s best work, recorded at his peak following his “rediscovery,” in 1964.
