Patton, Charley / Bukka White / Blind Willie Davis - American Primitive Vol.1: Raw Pre-War Gospel (1926-36) American Primitive Vol.1: Raw Pre-War Gospel (1926-36)
Blues Used - LP 6005 Revenant
Gorgeous 2LP Clear Vinyl Deluxe Gatefold Original With Custom Inner Sleeves. Unplayed Condition. "Until He Took A More Deconstructionist Course On Albums Like City Of Refuge And Womblife, John Fahey Wrote Songs That Drew Largely From His Love Of Country Blues And Folk Music. These Early American (And European) Forms Were Assimilated Into His Own Unique Fingerpicking Guitar Style. He Spent His Late Teenage Years Canvassing For 78 Rpm Records In America's Deep South. In 1997, He Launched The Revenant Reissue Label To Document The History Of Music As He Saw It. Surprisingly, Releases Ran The Musical Gamut From The Raw Rockabilly Sounds Of Charlie Feathers To The Otherworldly Blues Of Captain Beefheart. More Than Anything Else, However, American Primitive, Vol. 1, A Collection Of Early Gospel-Blues, Feels Like A Labor Of Love. One Of Fahey's Fascinating Stories Has Him Feeling Physically Sick Upon Hearing Blind Willie Johnson's "Praise God I'm Satisfied," Only To Find That He Was Unable To Get The Sound Out Of His Head. Hearing It For A Second Time, He Was Reduced To Tears. While Johnson Is Not Featured On This Compilation (His Entire Recording Career Is Documented On Two Exceptional Yazoo Compilations), The Music Here Is Rooted In The Same Soil. One Of The Fascinating Things About American Primitive Is The Wealth Of Little-Known Musicians It Turns Up. The Biggest Names Here Are Charlie Patton And Booker "Bukka" White. But Alongside Them Are Artists As Obscure As Blind Mamie Forehand, Dennis Crumpton, And Robert Summers. Purely As A Historical Document, American Primitive Is Absolutely Indispensable. It Becomes Difficult To Imagine These Precious Recordings Being Lost. The Titles Here Date Back To The Time Electrical Recording First Became A Feasible Concept (1927). As A Group Of Songs Unlike Anything Anyone Is Likely To Hear Today, It's One Of The Most Unique And Rewarding Listening Experiences Available.” – Nathan Bush, All Music Guide.... more details
