Review

Review Text Gwine Dig a Hole to Put the Devil In is an excellent sampling of material from Leadbelly's early Library of Congress sessions, including versions of some of the first songs he ever learned, "Green Corn" and "Po' Howard," his song to Governor Neff that helped secure his release from a Texas prison in 1925, his first recorded version of "If It Wasn't for Dickie" (later transformed into "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine") -- the master of which is, alas, somewhat damaged -- and "C. C. Rider." ~ Bruce Eder
