Leadbelly Huddie Ledbetter's Best: His Guitar, His Voice, His Piano And Sings Folk Songs on 180g Import 2LP

2 Original Albums Plus Bonus Tracks!

Leadbelly's Huddie Ledbetter's Best is a double LP with the albums His Guitar, His Voice, His Piano and Sings Folk Songs, both originally released in 1962, accomplished with a few bonus tracks. His Guitar, His Voice, His Piano was Leadbelly's last recording session for a commercial label, held in the early Fall of 1944, yielding a dazzling 12 songs, embracing virtuosic guitar blues ("Grasshoppers In My Pillow"), pounding piano-driven scatting ("The Eagle Rocks"), with Leadbelly himself at the ivories, a talent for standards done with the understated accompaniment of a zither (courtesy of Paul Mason Howard) as well as his own guitar. Sings Folk Songs are '40s Folkways recordings with Woody Guthrie, Cisco Houston and Sonny Terry. Leadbelly was in excellent voice and top form on guitar and piano.
