Rock Island Line: Snooks Eaglin

June 25, 2010

Folkways Records released New Orleans Street Singer in 1959 and the album set the world of folk and acoustic blues fans on fire. Snooks Eaglin was in the early stages of his long R&B career when folklorist Harry Oster heard him playing solo on the streets of the French Quarter. That very recording has been re-released by Smithsonian Folkways and is called New Orleans Street Singer.
