Another outstanding record that's the result of the Folk Blues Revival of the 1960s when, generally-speaking, young White Americans began to appreciate and search for the blues of older Black Americans. One of the most famous "rediscoveries" that came of this movement was that of Mississippi John Hurt, who before this 1966 release, had not recorded since 1928. Hurt was a supremely-skilled guitarist with a warm, inviting voice. Typical of the Vanguard releases from this period, the recording is excellent – perfectly sparse, ambient and true. The material is comprised of standards and originals, including his famous "Candy Man." This is another essential record in any blues collection.
