Blind Pig Records has reissued a series of tracks recorded by legendary blues mandolinist Yank Rachell in 1986 on a new collection entitled Blues Mandolin Man, a title to match a book about Rachell published in 2001 by the University Press of Mississippi.
On the recording, Yank is joined by a full rhythm section that finds him in fine form, his voice and instrumental skills still strong and compelling near the end of a career that began in the late 1920s.
Yank is joined on the recording by guitarist Peter Roller, drummer Leonard Marsh Jr., Sheena Rachell on electric bass and blues harmonica great Peter "Madcat" Ruth.
