Pink Anderson was never a big name on the blues circuit, yet he was perhaps the most polished and personal of all the rural bluesmen who recorded for Prestige's Bluesville subsidiary. He was seldom recorded during his long career which began around 1915 with his first of many associations with traveling medicine shows and ended with his death in 1973. He cut three fine albums for Bluesville during the early Sixties, this 1960 date being the first. Anderson, who had a strong influence on folk guitarists Roy Bookbinder and Paul Geremina, specialized in interpretations of blues standards, bringing to each a gentle, uniquely plaintive quality.
