Legendary Paramount recordings from Charlie Patton – mostly recorded in Richmond, Indiana in 1929 – but easily some of the most important Mississippi blues of the time! The package features a wealth of seminal songs from the June, 1929 session that really helped launch the Patton legacy – tracks that are arguably as important to the development of blues as the work of Robert Johnson, and which quite possibly circulated even more at the time. Patton's got a slightly folksy approach, and a sense of darkness that really makes most of these numbers very riveting, even all these many decades later – an acoustic brilliance that's had folks coming back to his music time and time again over the years. Titles include "Pony Blues", "A Spoonful Blues", "Shake It & Break It", "Prayer Of Death (parts 1 & 2)", "Going To Move To Alabama", and "Down The Dirt Road Blues".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover!
