Living Country Blues USA is a series of albums on L+R Records. The material was collected by German Blues experts Siegfried A. Christmann and Axel Küstner on an extended trip thru the south of the USA in the fall of 1980, in the form of so-called "Field-Recordings" …..
Blues On Highway 61 with James on' Thomas, Sam Chatmon, Walter Brown, Joe Cooper, Cleveland Broomman & Eddie Cusie Feeling lonesome, being down and out, nowhere to go, walking the highway up and down, riding the Greyhound bus, catching a freight train - all central themes in Blues, and the men you can hear on this record have lived the Blues and this was reality to them. The Blues has always been more than just one person's story, they are reflections and descriptions of a common lifestyle and experience. These artists tell the truth - the truth about being a black man in Mississippi, across the United States. The artists you can hear on this record all came from the same region of Mississippi. Their communities were centered around 61 Highway and lay only a couple of miles apart. Many Blues have been made about 61 Highway. Linking rural Louisiana and Mississsippi with northern industrial areas, thousands of blacks have travelled this road in hopes of a better life and future. Walter Brown's "Keep On Walkin"' can be seen as a reflection of their sufferings and struggle, the long road America's blacks had to walk since they were ?rst brought to that country as slaves.
