a note about this track

Blues Spotlight: An Early Mississippi Slide-Guitar Player, Sam Collins Used The Fluid Qualities Of His Bottleneck Technique To Emphasise A Light, Clear Vocal Delivery. Billed As 'Crying Sam Collins And His Git-Fiddle', And Recording More Than 50 Tracks In A Five Year Career, Sam Arrived In Chicago Some Time In The 1930's And Performed Occasionally, But His Rural Style Was Not To City Folks Taste And He Passed Away Unnoticed In 1949
