Title: Roots of It All Acoustic Blues 4
Label: Bear Family

The fourth and final volume in this series of 2-CD digipac sets. Covering the story of acoustic blues from 1980 to 2012. Acoustic blues recordings, a total of 40 tracks, carefully re-mastered from the original masters. 112-page booklet with rare photos and in-depth liner notes and bios. Blues greats like Taj Mahal, James 'Son' Thomas, Homesick James, John Hammond, and Keb' Mo, alongside lesser know artists like Guitar Frank, John Dee Holeman, Precious Bryant, a. m. o Any concern that interest in acoustic blues guitar would recede in the face of the loss of many of it's leading figures and so much electric blues and blues-rock was permanently put to rest by a new legion of disciples and the discovery of yet more older musicians that somehow eluded discovery during the postwar era (and in a few notable cases, pre-war days). Certified legends Robert Lockwood, Jr., Henry Townsend, and Sam Chatmon were happily still in business. Younger '60s/'70s discoveries Taj Mahal, John Hammond, Geoff Muldaur, David Bromberg, and Bonnie Raitt were now joined by the next generation of acoustic pickers, who brought fresh ideas to the table along with a deeply ingrained sense of tradition. As the blues underwent a major resurgence during the '80s and '90s with the genre finding it's way into advertising campaigns and mainstream films such as 'Crossroads,' young acoustic players with exciting new ideas emerged. In the cases of Keb' Mo' and Alvin Youngblood Hart, their debut CDs were released on a major label, underscoring the genre's renewed commercial potential. Corey Harris was every bit their artistic equal, albeit without major label backing
