complete recorded works in chronological order volume 2
part 2 of third man's remastered vinyl reissue of the legendary blues man’s complete recorded works.
if the delta country blues has a convenient source point, it would probably be charley patton, its first great star. his hoarse, impassioned singing style, fluid guitar playing, & unrelenting beat made him the original king of the delta blues. much more than your average itinerant musician, patton was an acknowledged celebrity & a seminal influence on musicians throughout the delta. the recordings presented in this reissue series are the building blocks & dna of american culture. blues, r&b, elvis, teenagerism, punk rock... it all goes back to these vital, breathtaking recordings. this reissue series comes with brand new, jaw-dropping artwork by rob jones.
