Charley Patton Vol 1
Charley Patton Vol 1


Charley Patton is considered to be one of the foremost influential bluesmen of the pre war period. The influence that he had on the generations of blues lovers to come is astronomical. Vol 1 kicks of with some of his most well loved songs, including Mississippi Boweavil Blues and Spoonful Blues; later covered by Cream. The slide performance in these two songs is stellar. Some of the standout pieces on the second volume of his collected works are Green River Blues, Farrell Blues ( a song in tribute to his hometown), and Come Back Corrina; with a vocal performance by Henry Sims. Volume three features the last nine sides released on the Paramount label and twelve sides which Charley recorded for the American Record Company and released on the Vocalion label. Henry Sims is on many tracks.
