MUSIC FROM THE PAST: POLICE DOG BLUES

Blind Blake (Real Name Arthur Blake, 1896-1934) was a master of the ragtime style of guitar picking, a precursor to the Piedmont style that became an important part of the blues guitar genre.  He recorded about 80 songs over a seven-year period for Paramount Records, ending when Paramount went bankrupt.  "Police Dog Blues" was released in 1929.
