You Treat Me Baby, Like Somebody You Never Seen

I got my hands on the new Yazoo releases where they went back and remastered the 1931 Skip James recordings (and the Son House ones also) as well as a handful of Charley Patton recordings where they approach the recordings with new ears. They discovered that the recordings were mastered at the wrong speed and correct the errors, resulting in a new and wonderful sound. They should be going up soon so keep yr eyes peeled.

Not much is known about Gene Campbell, He was most likely a Texas native or at the very least a Texas resident for part of his life as he mentions several Texas areas in his songs. He’s also heavily influenced by Blind Lemon Jefferson both lyrically and in his guitar playing, but he also shows off a level of originality to his phrasing and style that other Texas blues guitars lack. This track “Doggone Mean Blues” is just a fantastic Texas blues songs and one of the best examples of the genre.

One of my favorites recently. I cross-posted to both my Texas Music blog,, and to my Texas Politics blog, Gene Campbell expressed my feelings about the Texas Legislature perfectly. Thanks.
