Georgia Blues - Blind Willie McTell

A great documentary on Georgia bluesman Blind Willie McTell. It tells the story of Willie as a young boy growing up in the South and the creation of Blues guitar playing during a time of oppression and the obstacles that an African American musician faced during this time.
There are interviews with various characters who either knew Willie and those troubling times in America or others who have studied Blind Willie's style of singing, song writing and guitar playing.
A must watch for anyone with a love for the music and the history of the Blues.
