Extremely active as a musician for several decades, Wallace “Pinetop” Johnson gained a solid reputation in the Mississippi Delta area, most especially for his skill in performing boogie-woogie. This album fills a substantial gap in the documentation of this talented Clarksdale, Mississippi, blues piano player. It also features country blues guitar performances by Wade Walton, Big Jack Johnson, and Earnest Roy, all recorded at their homes in Clarksdale. All tracks were digitally remastered from the original tapes in 2013. Editorial assistance by Corey Wetherington, Penn State University.
