180 Gram Vinyl! Remastered by Document's Very Own Gary Atkinson and Features Brand New Artwork by Grammy-Award-Winning Designer Rob Jones!

Born William Samuel McTell in 1901, Blind Willie lost his sight in late childhood, yet earned the status as one of the most accomplished guitarists and lyrical storytellers in Blues history. Blind Willie became an accomplished musical theorist, able to both read and write music in Braille, through an encouraging family and strong faith.

While few of his recordings ever earned mainstream popularity, his influence on the modern music and art scene is widely known. His songs (Statesboro Blues, Broke Down Engine Blues, etc…) have been recorded by famous artists such as the Allman Brothers, Taj Mahal and others.

He left the music scene for the pulpit in later life and the details of Blind Willie’s death remain nebulous; nonetheless, his legacy grows exponentially each year. You have to maintain a certain tolerance for ambiguity to understand how a disabled African American from central Georgia in the early part of the 20th century could inspire the likes of the most successful and influential Blues, Jazz and Rock musicians of our time. While accomplished and appreciated in his day, Blind Willie was never truly successful by today’s standards. His real claim to success has been realized in his gift to future generations. In his lifetime, overcoming physical and social adversity was part of the program.

Blind Willie McTell's Volume 2 from Third Man's highly-anticipated Document Records reissue series on black 180-gram vinyl, remastered by Document's very own Gary Atkinson and features brand new artwork by Grammy-award-winning designer Rob Jones.
