Wilkins, Robert - That's No Way To Get Along lp (Monk)


"Seminal American blues guitarist and vocalist Robert Wilkins
(1896-1987) played on the Memphis blues scene at the same time as Furry
Lewis, Son House, Charley Patton and Memphis Minnie, and was versatile
in a range of styles, including ragtime, blues, minstrel and gospel.
These recordings cover his early years as a recording artist, from his
debut recording session for Victor in 1928, which yielded the famous
'Rolling Stone', plus three more tracks, followed by 8 more tracks
recorded for Vocalion in 1929-30, which included the legendary 'That's
No Way To Get Along' aka 'Prodigal Son' (famously covered by the Rolling
Stones). The final 5 tracks were recorded in Jackson, Miss. in 1935 and
feature a second guitar player and a spoons player, resulting in the
production of another classic, 'Old Jim Canan's'. In 1935 Wilkins left
secular music altogether, becoming an ordained minister and herbalist.
He was, however, rediscovered in the 1960s during the blues revival and
played various festivals during this time, including Newport."
