The King Of The 12-string's music, much of which he adapted from traditional folk songs, has provided a rich songbook for innumerable artists since his death in 1949.
Even if you don't think you know Lead Belly's songs, you almost certainly know The House Of The Rising Sun, Midnight Special, Goodnight Irene, Where Did You Sleep Last Night and Black Betty, albeit through intereprations by other musicians.
Much more than just a blues guitarist, Lead Belly is a monolith in the history of American popular music.
"Good 'ole Lead Belly is a must listen for classic blues." (Thanks, Mick)
