American Country/Delta blues guitarist,
singer & songwriter, who began recording on the Vocalion label in 1927.
His stamping ground - despite the fact he had lost a leg - was in & around the Memphis scene, such as Pee Wee's near his home on Beale street, with a day job as a street-sweeper until his retirement in 1966.

In 1972 he was part of the renowned Memphis Blues Caravan, along with artists such as Bukka White, Sleepy John Estes & Sam Chatmon. He twice opened for The Rolling Stones and even acquired a profile in Playboy magazine. He died of heart-failure aged 88, shortly after contracting pneumonia, and is buried in Hollywood Cemetery, South Memphis.

Includes booklet with liner notes and discography.
All titles recorded in Memphis, Tennessee, October 3, 1959, except B2, recorded in Memphis on February 18, 1959.
