In the 1920s and ’30s, Hayes McMullan played blues around his home in the Mississippi Delta. He shared the stage with the likes of Charley Patton and Willie Brown, but gave it up after his brother Tom, a more popular local bluesman, died of poisoning. It wasn’t until blues archivist Gayle Dean Wardlow’s chance meeting in 1967 that the blues-guitarist-turned-church-deacon-and-civil-rights-activist finally preserved his songs to tape. Those landmark sessions are now available for the world to discover the greatest Delta bluesman they’ve never heard.
