One of the most popular East Coast bluesmen (along with Blind Blake and Tampa Red), Blind Boy Fuller was the last commercially successful country blues artist whose style had either a regional basis or regional impact. He became a best-seller at at a time when the commercial blues market was pre-empted by slow Chicago band blues. Unlike his popular contemporaries Kokomo Arnold and Bo Carter, who similarly echoed pre-1930's music, Fuller attracted numerous imitators, including Brownie McGhee, whose debut records billed him as "Blind Boy No. 2." Yet none of Fuller's musical relatives managed to attain his blend of lively showmanship and skillful technique, which made him a stand-out in a region that abounded with polished instrumentals. Unlike most blues artists, Fuller can be completely engaging as both a party-oriented or "jive" performer and a somber bluesman. The Yazoo Records compilation Truckin' My Blues Away collects material he recorded from 1935 to 1939.
