seminal

rgmcnabb

Compilations like this are why I stick with e-music. Charley Patton is an acquired taste, but worth the effort. The sound is, for the most part, improved here over some of the (multitudinous) Charley Patton collections out there.

good value- must have music-fair sound

mr. mark

E-music is a great way to get the music of the great early bluesmen such as Willie Mctell,Robert Johnson. and Charlie Patton. With 58 classic tracks at 24 credits this is a great value, but some of these tunes do sound better elsewhere.These recordings may have been remastered but they were not cleaned up much. Well, they sound like 78 year old 78's, not like the famous Robert Johnson box set. UPDATE-I did quick A/B on the samples of "Pony Blues". It seems to sound best on the first Document volume. The stuff on Columbia-Legacy Series, or even Document or JSP are easier on the ears, but Patton's music is awesome, and several of these tunes will be familiar to fans of rock and electric blues. this is also NOT close to Patton's complete works, but it has most of his best.

Re-Documenting the Blues

By John Morthland, Contributor

Document's modus operandi was simple: Pick an artist and reissue the total output on however many albums — or, later, CDs — it took. Less-recorded artists — Geechie Wiley, say — shared a single album with other names; the more prolific — like Peetie Wheatstraw — got considerably more (seven… more »

Where Did the Blues Begin?

By John Morthland, Contributor

The biggest debate in blues circles these days is, "where did the blues begin?" Ever since the blues revival of the 50s and 60s, the answer has been "the Mississippi Delta." But in recent years, more than a few blues buffs have argued, that while the Delta is where the harshest form of blues indeed gelled, there is very little evidence to suggest that blues started there. Further, Delta blues in its heyday was almost… more »

Preachin’ the Blues

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 »
