Black Ace was a stage name frequently used by Texas blues musician Babe Kyro Lemon (B.K.) Turner (1905 – 1972). He acquired his nickname after recording “Black Ace Blues” in 1937. He achieved his unique musical style by laying a steel Hawaiian guitar flat on his knees and playing it with a bottle-neck. This collection contains two sessions recorded during August and September 1960 and six tracks recorded in 1937 including the original “Black Ace.”
1992, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. Originally released on Arhoolie Records.
