Sealed 2009 180gm HQ Mono Reissue. "Leadbelly's Last Recording Sessions For A Commercial Record Label, Held In The Early Fall Of 1944, Yielded A Dazzling 12 Songs, Embracing Virtuoso Guitar Blues ("Grasshoppers In My Pillow"), Pounding Piano-Driven Scatting ("The Eagle Rocks," With Leadbelly Himself At The Ivories, A Talent For Which He Wasn't Usually Recognized), And Familiar Standards Done In Some Startlingly Different Ways, Including "Goodnight, Irene," "Rock Island Line," And "Ella Speed," Done With The Understated Accompaniment Of A Zither (Courtesy Of Paul Mason Howard) As Well As His Own Guitar. Leadbelly Was In Excellent Voice And Top Form On Guitar And Piano And Capitol's Recording Caught The Brightest As Well As The Deepest Tones In His Playing, Thus Making This Record One Of The Very Best Showcases For Acoustic 12-String Guitar Of The Period."-AMG
