Henry Townsend “Poor Man Blues”
from Broke, Black and Blue An Antholodgy Of Blues Classics and Rarities (Proper Records 1999) L —Henry arrived in St. Louis in late 1920. This song was recorded for Columbia Records in Chicago in 1929.
Willie Brown “Future Blues”
from Broke, Black and Blue An Antholodgy Of Blues Classics and Rarities (Proper Records 1999) —A Paramount release in 1930. Brown, who was born in 1900 and died in 1952, was a contemporary of Son House and Charlie Patton, who played with more precision than House but was woefully under-recorded.
Charlie Patton “High Sheriff Blues”
from Founder Of the Delta Blues (Yazoo/Shanachie 1995) —All the titles on this CD were compiled from extremely rare 78s...'cause that's all there is! I picked a clean one for you, as some are pretty rough sounding. If blues is a botheration on the mind, then Charlie was bothered - and so am I ! "High Sheriff"
