This Just In: Ghost Woman Blues

Hey everyone! This is a week later than promised. I got stuck in Portland a few days longer than expected (thanks, Frontier Airlines), so I couldn’t get a post up last week. But this week we’ve got a recent Mississippi Records comp in, so that’s exciting enough to cover the missing week, right? Ghost Woman Blues is the last comp MR is dropping for a minute (they’re taking a short production break til 2015). We’ve got copies of that, as well as a repress of their incredible 2007 comp of “early American minority music,” I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore. Supposedly it wasn’t going to be pressed again, but that’s what I thought about some of their other releases, including Irma Thomas – Sings!, which is slated to be repressed in 2015 along with other select MR classics. Oh joy! No guarantee that Ghost Woman Blues will be around long, so come nab it while you can!

Various – Ghost Woman Blues LP:

Listen: George Carter – “Ghost Woman Blues” (Document version)
Compilation of absolutely must have country blues. A mix of well-known artists playing their signature songs and more obscure musicians. Highlights include Bukka White’s elemental ‘Fixin’ to die’, Lottie Kimbroughs’ seldom heard ‘Don’t Speak To Me’, George Carters’ haunting ‘Ghost Woman Blues’, Willie Browns’ existential ‘Future Blues’, Monroe Moe Jackson’s wild ‘Go Away From My Door’ and many more hits. The real stuff and some of Mississippi Records all time favorite tunes.”
