>Rev. Pearly Brown "It’s a mean old world to try to live in"


 Reverend Pearly Brown was a blind street singer and preacher, like Reverend Gary Davis, with a simple but effective guitar style and a very soulful voice. His repertoire, while purely religious was very large; Spirituals, Holy Blues, gospel,traditionnal slave songs, etc…

This lp was first issued in 1975 and is available again through Rounder Archive with six aditionnal tracks. There’s another album from him on the Arhoolie label.
