After Skip James was rediscovered in the early 60s he went on to record an amazing body of material. These 1964 tracks recorded by Dick Spottswood are some of the best. They initially came out on Melodeon which was later sold to Biograph who reissued them. Some of these tracks have been featured on other Skip James records, but Greatest Of The Delta Blues Singers is one of the rarest of Skip James releases, featuring a beautiful cover drawing of the blues legend. This reissue includes two bonus tracks that were rarely recorded by James, "Motherless and Fatherless" and "Skip's Worried Blues."
