Blind Willie McTell (born William Samuel McTier; May 5, 1898 – August 19, 1959) was a Piedmont blues and ragtime singer and guitarist. He played with a fluid, syncopated fingerstyle guitar technique, common among many exponents of Piedmont blues. Unlike his contemporaries, he came to use twelve-string guitars exclusively. McTell was also an adept slide guitarist, unusual among ragtime bluesmen

Atlanta street singer Blind Willie McTell was a solid 12-string acoustic guitar player with a surprisingly versatile voice who rolled up blues, spirituals, and rags into a distinctive style all his own. This collection brings together several of his mid-'30s 78 RPMs, including early versions of his signature songs, like the elegant and oft-covered "Statesboro Blues" and "Broke Down Engine Blues," as well as the lovely (but lesser known) "Love Changing Blues.

Album · 1972 · 15 Songs. The Piedmont blues of Georgia and the Carolinas is stylish and refined, and no musician embodied these qualities better than Blind Willie McTell. Featuring sides from the late ’40s, this collection documents a well-seasoned bluesman whose ragtime-flavored 12-string sounds nothing short of sublime; just absorb the lyrical, percussive qualities of "Pinetop's Boogie Woogie. Themes of sin and redemption make his songs even more gripping: The one-two punch of You Got to Die and Ain’t It Grand to Live a Christian Life sums up McTell’s worldview

Blind Willie McTell was a long way removed for the tortured, troubled bluesmen of the Delta scene. Yet by helping define the East Coast style with his precise, distinctive twelve-string guitar playing and his clear, melodic voice, his role in the development of the Blues was no less important. Like so many of his contemporaries, McTell's origins are ill defined. Born on or around 5 May 1898 near Thomson, Georgia, and practically blind for birth (what little sight he had barely lasted through infancy), his original name is believed to have been McTear or McTier

My copy has the wrong label on side A. It is the label from the Mississippi John Hurt LP from the same series.
