Last night I stumbled across this Lead Belly recording and it hasn’t left my player or my head since. Document – Records released this recording of Lead Belly playing in 1948 at a private party in Minnesota of all places. The recording is surprisingly clear and his guitar sounds perfect. The recording is pretty scratchy when it’s just Lead Belly talking (the start of most of the tracks) but the recordings of the actual songs is quite clear by most standards. It is just amazing to hear these songs in a live setting and also to hear how he’s interpreting these songs.
