Sleepy John Estes
These classic Estes performances from the 1920's and 1930's convey a musical and emotional power rarely matched. Of all the musicians to come out of western Tennessee, Sleepy John Estes is unsurpassed in his moving style of singing the blues. His songs are driven from the people and events of his hometown, Brownsville, Tennessee, and are delivered with impeccable phrasing and feeling.
