Boomkat Product Review:
Volume 3 of the complete recorded works of Charley Patton released by Jack White's Third Man label. This volume spans late November/early December 1929 to December 1929 and includes 15 pieces by the "father of the Delta Blues". "Patton was born between 1887 and 1891 in Hinds County, Mississippi and fittingly lived most of his extraordinary life in the Delta area. However, debate about Patton's race and parentage have continued to build mystery. Although African American, his light complexion created rumours that he was either Mexican or even Cherokee Indian, a theory endorsed by his close friend, Howlin' Wolf (one of Patton's grandmothers was a full-blood Cherokee). Patton's exotic heritage would become celebrated in several of his songs. On "Down the Dirt Road Blues," he refers to '…the nation,' meaning Cherokee nation."
