Henry Thomas - Ragtime Texas (1929)

Fans of: The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Uncle Dave Macon
Genre: Blues
Get it here

I'll be honest, I don't listen to too much old blues so the related tags reflect the notable bands who've covered this man's work. I've listened to this album about a thousand times since finding it, and like my blues, it never gets old. Henry Thomas is the oldest African-American blues artist (born 1987), his songs were recorded over 1927-1929 and this discography has some of my favourite music of all time. I hope you can all dig it enough to slip it into a lonely afternoon on a stoop or some shit. Shout to Nick for giving me the greatest music.
