Primeval Blues, Rags And Gospel Songs


Charlie Patton is considered by many to be the single most important figure in the history of traditional blues as performer, influence and inspiration. The combined power of his vocal and guitar dynamics is unparalleled, and his legacy is an imposing body of powerful and eloquent music. This collection focuses on the wide breadth and scope of Patton's repertoire - in addition to his unparalleled primitive blues there are powerful early back-country rags, gospel songs and more. These performances are the Dead Sea scrolls of early black rural music. For this release Yazoo has re-mastered these classic recordings in the finest sound reproduction.
