does anyone know much about Charley Patton? more importantly, does anyone have any of his compilation albums?
assuming you don't mean the 1920's delta blues player...
but im at uni, and it would be at home. A crate of these old blues albums that were done as some part of massive blues collection i think? picked up the whole kaboodle for about 2 quid. apart from that, no. i know the name. famous for being the original blues gravelly voice right?
double cd, I bought it in Amoeba in San Francisco in 2006
he makes scratchy magical blues ditties that prove how utterly dull the rock music that blues spawned really was/is.
All of his compilations are worth getting, i think the one mentioned above was a big-scale remaster re-release thing a few years ago that Jack White went around bigging up, there's a few good cheap compilations on labels like Hallmark though, i think i've got one called Pony Blues back at home.
Did twoddle put a track on your mixtape?
i know who he is etc, but i'm writing a piece/doing a presentation and trying to get hold of High Water Everywhere Part 2; if anybody could upload/send me the mp3 it would be much appreciated.
i don't particularly remember there being a track of his on any mixtapes i've received...
i did wonder. i'm afraid i can't help at the moment though.
