Vinyl LP - Sealed
Across the works of Americana traditionalists like Ry Cooder and John Fahey, earnest folkies like Bruce Cockburn and Gillian Welch, and even blues-fusion weirdos like Beck, the sounds and influence of Mississippi John Hurt can be felt. Among his Delta Blues peers Hurt stood out equally for his gentle and genial demeanor as his distinct style of blues guitar, which heavily emphasized finger-picking and lyrical nuance, and was intended for dancing to. A legend of the genre that might have been condemned to obscurity if not for the folk revival of the 1960s, which introduced a wider audience to him and his songs, which would be covered by the likes of Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia, Taj Mahal, and others.

Hurt's most definitive works can be traced back to 1928, when he recorded several singles for Okeh Records, where he would also come into the acquaintance of other blues legends like Blind Lemon Jefferson and Bessie Smith. These recordings would later become signature songs of his, such as "Spike Driver Blues", "Stack O' Lee Blues" and "Avalon Blues." The singles were not commercially successful at the time, but attracted greater success decades later, when a younger generation of blues and folk fans would embrace him, allowing him to appear on The Tonight Show, at the Newport Folk Festival, and tour and perform until his death in 1966. The 1928 Sessions, which started it all for Mississippi John, are now compiled here in their entirety.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectibles, commanding a higher price.


Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
