Traced back far enough, many genres celebrated today are rooted in the blues, specifically the early acoustic blues that was luckily recorded before WWII. It was a poverty-stricken, racist time when these artists struggled through day-to-day life, sometimes as sharecroppers, other times as bootleggers, and by night as musicians. Some were never known, almost faceless, with no existing photographs or anecdotes, only a ghost-like presence through fuzzy, low quality recordings.
