True blues history!
stbob | 08/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great slice of blues history. Rather than stocking these videos full of "filler" (narrative, previews, historical discussion), the creators chose to highlight actual historical footage of Ms. Cotten and Mr. Fuller doing what they did best -- Ms. Cotten's left-handed "Carolina" fingerpicking, later known as "Cotten-picking", and Mr. Fuller doing is sweet country blues and playing his "foot-della", an invention he created for accompaniment."
