Curley Weaver, aka the Georgia Guitar Wizard, isn't as widely recognized as those the picker often worked with, most famously "Barbecue Bob" Hicks and the legendary Blind Willie McTell. Nevertheless, Weaver was a first-tier progenitor of hard-swinging Piedmont blues. Check out his fingerpicking on the spiffy instrumentals "Decatur Street 81" and "Tampa Strut." Vintage crackle smothers more than a few tracks here. But hey, that's par for the course when exploring anthologies of pre-war blues.
