The song titles tell the tale: "Bad Time Blues," "Starvation Blues," "No Dough Blues." The second volume of Yazoo's two-part '20s and '30s songs of insolvency series is every bit as involving and interesting as its 23-song affiliate. Artists renowned (Sleepy John Estes, Blind Blake) and remote sound off on the hardships many rural Americans endured up to and after the advent of the Great Depression. The subject matter is uniformly grim, but humor lightens the mood of many these tunes. "The poor are getting poorer / The rich are getting rich / If I don't starve I'm a son of a gun," Dave McCarn teases on "Cotton Mill Colic." Lengthy liner essays make the <i>Hard Times</i> discs all the more appealing for those with a partiality for both old-time music and Depression- era history. <i>--Steven Stolder</i>
