Sam Chatmon


Here's a very good country blues record by Sam Chatmon, recorded in the seventies, at the end of his career. To me he really is one of the great blues patriarchs. (There's not so many blues artists who grew a beard like Sam when he got old, and it looks great...)http://www.mediafire.com/file/nayyweuhwjz/Blues when it rains.zip

Many thanks for this. It is indeed a hard record to find and a nice collection...some of which ended up on future Yazoo releases.

If you get a chance to snag Dick Spottswood's 15-volume Folk Music in America series, I think you'd like that as well!

And thanks very much for the link!

PS - Whoops, meant to leave this comment on your "You Can Tell the World About This" post! Though, Sam Chatmon is wonderful too, of course ;)
