Bottleneck Guitar 1928-1937 Review

by Thom Owens

Yazoo's Bottleneck Guitar (1928-1937) is a great collection of early recordings from slide guitarist Tampa Red. The 14-track collection has a number of classic solo cuts from Tampa -- including "You Gotta Reap What You Sow" and "Seminole Blues" -- plus duets with the likes of Georgia Tom and Ma Rainey, making it an excellent overview of his earliest sides.
