No musicians ever surpassed Indianapolis' Francis 'Scrapper' Blackwell for the gifted guitar playing that makes for so much of the blues' charm and durability. Although his commercial identity began and ended in collaboration with the pianist Leroy Carr, Blackwell's huge talents were often parlayed into the fine solos to be heard on this album. They were undiminished by the time of his death in 1962, when many of his contemporaries were but sad parodies of themselves. Along with his remarkable over-all competence, Blackwell had several distinctive qualities. Foremost among these were the long, single-note, interior progressions that probably influenced artists like Willie Harris. Another trademark was his simultaneous bass string strumming and treble string snapping.
