SPENCE, JOSEPH - MUSIC OF THE BAHAMAS: BAHAMAN FOLK GUITAR (LP)


"Music historian Sam Charters first recorded the legendary Bahamian guitarist Joseph Spence on Andros Island in July 1958 for Folkways Records. Charters was so enthusiastic about Spences playing that the LP, released in 1959, became one of the labels first to be dedicated entirely to a single artist from outside the US. This reissue, long out of print on vinyl, includes three bonus tracks that originally appeared on a 1964 Folkways split LP featuring Spence and two other Bahamian musicians, John Roberts and Frederick McQueen."
