Born in Bentonia, Mississippi in 1902, Skip James began recording for Paramount in Grafton, WI in the 1930s after showcasing his unmistakable talent in a series of auditions in Jackson, Mississippi. Particularly interesting was his three finger picking technique, his high pitch voice and the rural blues tales that he put in music for a sub genre of blues that was later called the "Bentonia school". This LP includes some of his rarest early tunes from those lost 78 rpm from the Grafton period.
