Charley Patton - Founder of the Delta Blues lp (Yazoo)


"Charley (a.k.a. Charlie) Patton was the most powerful blues recording artist of all time, considered by many to be the single most important figure in the history of traditional blues. He was a profound shaper and a giant figure in early Mississippi Delta music. The combined power of this vocal and guitar dynamics is unparalleled and he was the Delta's first blues celebrity. Founder contains his most famous blues while the companion album (2001) virtually completes Patton's legacy and includes recently discovered unissued takes. Focusing on the breadth of his repertoire, it evokes a sense of what the earliest blues stylings may have sounded like, and includes bottleneck blues and sanctified songs." -Yazoo
