Blind Lemon Jefferson

Howdie people,

I'm looking for some good Lemon Jefferson albums. I have listened to some songs by him and he's amazing IMO. The songs I have heard are a bit scratchy, are there any "cleaned up" releases or any newer releases by him? What albums do you recomend?

Thanks.

Stiff, in my opinion there is only one way to go on this. For his complete recordings cleaned up as well as they'll ever be then get the JSP box set. Decent set of notes with it too.

Your other options are the two Yazoo CDs or the four Document CDs but they'll both set you back more than that complete JSP set and either have inferior sound or not all of his tracks. JSP absolutely rule and have solved a lot of headaches for me on my blues wants list.
