South Georgia Blue

$12.99

Quick Overview

Better known to the tax man as William Robertson, Cecil Barfield is a true Blues original who recorded this, his debut album with George Mitchell in 1978, originally for the Southland imprint. One of the few active Bluesmen remaining in Georgia at that time, Cecil lived in a shack with no running water or electricity and learned to play on a one stringed cooking oil can. His distinctively accented vocals can remarkably contort from a moaning hum to wrenched squeeze in the space of a few bars, miraculously morphing from track to track with the effect of sounding like a different singer each time. The glorious sleeve notes accompanying the record expand on his legend and unique style, but we're sure that after one listen to this fella you'll immediately be under the spell of a truly original player.
