5.0 out of 5 stars Historically Essential April 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The early life of Charles Patton (also shown as Charlie or Charley Patton), a now renowned Delta Blues artist who is, indeed, looked upon by many historians as the Father Of The Delta Blues, is shrouded in mystery. The consensus seems to be that he was born somewhere in Hinds County, Mississippi in 1887 - 1891 - or 1894 (take your pick), but there is no doubt that, after moving to and growing up at the Dockery Plantation sawmill and cotton farm not far from Ruleville, Mississippi, he became the most influential person in the lives of the likes of John Lee Hooker, Chester Burnett (Howlin' Wolf) and Robert Johnson, each of whom, like Patton, was inducted into the Blues Hall Of Fame in its inaugural year of 1980.

His expert guitar work was augmented by a loud, gravelly voice, and while you won't find his work listed anywhere in the various national charts, his records, some of the best of which are in this volume from Proper Records of the U.K., were hugely popular in Mississippi and surrounding areas and, as mentioned, essential listening for some of the greatest Blues artists to come. His most famous song, Pony Blues, first recorded in 1929, was selected in 2006 by the National Recording Preservation Board of the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry as being among music regarded as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

What is known about his personal life for certain is that he passed away on April 28, 1934 following a life-long battle with heart disease and that his headstone at the graveyard in Holly Ridge was paid for in 1990 by John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival fame.

If you love the Blues, as I do, you will want to make this release, housed in a nice fold-out cardboard sleeve and with exceptionally good sound considering the age of the records, a part of your collection.
