Charlie Patton, Charley Patton Vol. 1 (1929)
2005 | Label: Document Records / The Orchard

Nobody looms larger in Delta blues than Patton, the first man — at least on record — to develop many of the music's guitar licks and rhythmic and lyric patterns. He was a more extreme version of Tommy Johnson, and he was the music's first real star — not a rambling street singer, but a no-holds-barred showman hired to play before adoring crowds.

By Mike McGonigal, Contributor

"Yes, I'm gonna get me religion, I'm gonna join the Baptist Church/ You know I wanna be a Baptist preacher, just so I won't have to work" — Son House, "Preachin 'the Blues" Blues singers recorded dozens of superb gospel sides during the commercial recording heyday of the '20s and '30s, and later during the folk and blues revival of the late '50s and early '60s. Many blues singers had gospel songs in their repertoire, but… more »
