AllMusic Review by

Document's four-part series covering the complete late-'20s recordings of Blind Lemon Jefferson -- each available as separate volumes -- is an invaluable purchase for dedicated fans or academics. For less-interested listeners, the long running time, exacting chronological sequencing, poor fidelity (all cuts are transferred from original acetates and 78s), and number of performances will be hard to digest.
