Blind Boy Fuller

Unlike blues artists like Big Bill or Memphis Minnie who recorded extensively over three or four decades, Blind Boy Fuller recorded his substantial body of work over a short, six-year span. Nevertheless, he was one of the most recorded artists of his time and by far the most popular and influential Piedmont blues player of all time. Fuller could play in multiple styles: slide, ragtime, pop, and blues were all enhanced by his National steel guitar. Fuller worked with some fine sidemen, including Rev. Gary Davis, Sonny Terry, and washboard player Bull City Red. Initially discovered and promoted by Carolina entrepreneur H.B. Long, Fuller recorded for ARC and Decca. He also served as a conduit to recording sessions, steering fellow blues musicians to the studio.

In spite of Fuller's recorded output, most of his musical life was spent as a street musician and house party favorite, and he possessed the skills to reinterpret and cover the hits of other artists as well. In this sense, he was a synthesizer of styles, parallel in many ways to Robert Johnson, his contemporary who died three years earlier. Like Johnson, Fuller lived fast and died young in 1942, only 33 years old. Fuller was a fine, expressive vocalist and a masterful guitar player best remembered for his uptempo ragtime hits "Rag Mama Rag," "Trucking My Blues Away," and "Step It Up and Go." At the same time he was capable of deeper material, and his versions of "Lost Lover Blues" and "Mamie" are as deep as most Delta blues. Because of his popularity, he may have been overexposed on records, yet most of his songs remained close to tradition and much of his repertoire and style is kept alive by North Carolina and Virginia artists today. ~ Barry Lee Pearson, Rovi

I really enjoy hearing Blind Boy Fuller and wish that Pandora would set up an 'album play list' whereby folks could listen to an entire album and NOT just a few songs in the total mix.

Some answers from an older fan who knew many of the 30s players: Try Blind Lemon, superlative guitar. Many were blind, some (including Charlie Patton, John Hurt, Skip James, Fred McDowell, Mance Lipscomb, John Estes) were not. Sonny Terry was blind; Brownie McGee was not. Musician was a much better gig than field work.
it's not that they were all blind, but blind artist in the early 20th century especially african american artist didn't have much to choose from in terms of employment and they won't of been able to work in the fields due to their disability so to make a livng they played music
Were they all blind?
