Garfield Akers & Joe Calicott – “Cottonfield Blues (Part1)”

Garfield Akers & Joe Calicott – “Cottonfield Blues (Part One)”

This is one of the few very early blues recordings that has a bonafide recording date – September 23, 1929. Garfield Akers on lead guitar and vocals with Joe Calicott on second guitar and is often cited by musicologist as one of the greatest blues guitar duets of all time. The intensity and raw passion of these great guitarist is clearly apparent as Garfield and Joe shine with rhythmic complexity and raw passion.
