Charley Patton is widely considered to be the father of the Mississippi Delta Blues tradition, a genre of music that would go on to become world-famous through the work of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Lead Belly, John Lee Hooker and Blind Willie McTell. In 1987, a collection of the best musicians and scholars of Delta Blues commemorated the centenary of Patton’s birth in 1887 by holding a symposium. Collected here are the papers they presented at that symposium, along with photographs and illustrations befitting the richness of their subject. This copy signed and numbered by the editor, Robert Sacre. Errata slip laid in.
