Although most of his recordings were from a relatively short period, 1935 to 1940, Blind Boy Fuller was one of the most influential of the early Piedmont Blues musicians. A superb vocalist and master of the National steel guitar, Fuller recorded in many styles; slide, ragtime, pop, and blues. Much of his repertoire is kept alive by the great Piedmont Blues artists of today, such as Cephus & Wiggins.
It was his uptempo ragtime recordings backed by Bull City Red on washboard and kazoo that are favorites of mine.
