AllMusic Review by

The third volume in Document's Complete Recorded Works series of Blind Lemon Jefferson collections features 21 songs, all recorded during 1928. Though the period included one stone-cold classic ("See That My Grave Is Kept Clean") and a few intriguing novelties ("Balky Mule Blues," "Piney Woods Money Mama"), most blues fans won't need to hear these tracks. Complete Recorded Works, Vol. 3 (1928) remains an interesting curiosity for completists and academics, exactingly sequenced but not as listenable as the more popular collections available.
