Been Listening All Day : BLIND JOE TAGGART : CD

SKU: NEH04

Many years before his bland brand of Folk Blues became so popular in the 1950's Folk star Josh White was one of East Coast Blues' most prodigious talents, his first ever recording date in the studio, however, had occurred in 1928 whilst he was still only 14 years of age, and in the company of Blind Joe Taggart. He played second guitar to Taggart on 4 numbers at that first session. One of Brunswick's scouts was searching for talent on the East Coast and discovered Taggart, in Charleston, West Virginia. The decision to record Joe, whose initial session took place in November 1926, marked the dawn of the 'guitar evangelist' era, with the Rev. Edward Clayborn and Blind Willie Johnson. At the time of his November 1926 recording date Blind Joe Taggart was 36 years old.
