Every record collection should have ample room for these highly important and endlessly listenable albums!

The Mississippi Sheiks (as well as all African American string bands) deserve recognition and should not be allowed to fade into musical obscurity. This rare and beautifully simple musical style is being carried on by today groups, such as the Nashville Bluegrass Band, whom constantly acknowledge Bluegrass's African American roots.

The Mississippi Sheiks were a popular and influential guitar and fiddle group of the 1930s. They were notable mostly for playing country blues but were adept at many styles of United States popular music of the time, and their records were bought by both black and white audiences. Country blues is often seen as being the domain of individual musicians, a stereotype propagated by the way such delta blues performers as Robert Johnson and Charley Patton have entered the popular consciousness. Of the smaller number of groups playing at the time, the Mississippi Sheiks are among the better known and most influential among their peers.
