Better tell somebody
better come and get
this black snake soon

Lead Belly - Black Snake
These eight songs are the fruit of Lead Belly’s first visit to New York in 1935, but the record company’s financial downfall prevented all but two— Pigmeat and Black Snake Moan from reaching the market. This album reverses that misfortune of unavailability, and the notes provide vignettes of the bluesman’s experiences.
