Volume 4 in Jack White's stellar reissue series of Charley Patton's finest. In case you don't know, Patton was the first important Mississippi Delta bluesman.  He recorded prolifically, really sold records and influenced everyone who followed — from Howlin' Wolf to Big Damn Band.

 

This volume includes some of Patton's very best. Oh, and full disclosure: These tracks are taken from 1920s/30s shellac 78-rpm discs, so yes, there will be a little bacon frying in the background (at least in my mind).
