This astonishing and rare live recording of folk/gospel/blues icon Bessie Jones, made with her acclaimed vocal group, the Georgia Sea Singers, is truly an American treasure. Jones, who was discovered in 1959 by legendary archivist Alan Lomax, remained unknown until she and the Singers made a trip to New York City in 1961, where they were warmly embraced by the growing folk and acoustic blues movement.
