We are completing a trio of Americana themed posts today with Bay Area bluesman Blind Lemon Pledge whose love of pre-WWII Country Blues imbues his compositions with an whimsical, old-time flavour.

Haunting, sombre tracks like The Hills Of West Virginia feel like a precursor to freewheeling-era Dylan / stripped down Springsteen.

Have a listen.
