Blind Blake – “Police Dog Blues” mp3

Besides Robert Johnson, no other blues artist was as influential, sold as many records, and remains so cloaked in mystery as Blind Blake. Being blind, Blake most likely earned a living playing for change on street corners or for Saturday night dances and fish fries. His first recorded side, “West Coast Blues,” was a hit and led to a prestigious and impressive recording career that lasted until 1932.
