As with many poor black Americans of his time, the exact birth place, date, and name of Blind Willie Reynolds is a mystery. What is known is Blind Willie Reynolds was one of the more eccentric musicians of his day. He used his music in subversive ways, commenting on society as he toured the South, minstrel style. Blinded from a shot gun blast to the face, this only heightened his guitar playing to levels most guitarists only dream of achieving. “Third Street Women Blues” was recorded on September 26, 1930 in Memphis TN.
