This album gives a cross-section of Tampa Red stuff, ranging from pure slide instrumentals (was anybody else playing this kind of stuff in 1930? -- I never heard an instrumental from Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson never recorded one) to slide blues songs to vaudevilley-type hokum songs. Unfortunately, the vaudeville stuff is kinda dated, but there's some real good stuff in the instrumentals.
