When Leroy Carr made his recording debut in 1928 the prevailing blues sounds were created by small bands behind vaudeville vamps like Bessie Smith or country guitarists in the mode of Blind Lemon Jefferson. As a city-bred piano player Carr brought a new dimension to blues recording; he was a shade slicker than most country bluesmen but far raunchier than the average vaudeville blues singer. Scrapper Blackwell's intrinsic vibrato and string-snapping effects made  him one of the blues' most distinctive-sounding guitarists. No other guitarist ever worked so skillfully behind a pianist as Blackwell did with Carr. Their duet style has influenced nearly every subsequent piano-guitar blues collaboration. Originally issued on Yazoo Records in 1973, Naptown Blues collects material the dynamic duo recorded from 1929-1934.
