CHARLIE PATTON VOCALION 02651 BLUES 78 RPM RECORD E
POOR ME / 34 BLUES
THIS RECORD WAS RECORDED DURING PATTON'S FINAL SESSIONS BEFORE HIS DEATH IN APRIL 1934. "POOR ME" WAS RECORDED IN FEBRUARY 1934, "34 BLUES" IN JANUARY OF THE SAME YEAR. 34 BLUES IS CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF HIS GREAT RECORDINGS. PATTON'S MUSIC CAN BE VERY DARK BUT PROBABLY NONE AS DARK AS POOR ME, A SONG HE WROTE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF HIMSELF AFTER HE'S DEAD LOOKING DOWN FROM HEAVEN AT HIS WIFE BERTHA LEE. ROBERT CRUMB DEPICTED THIS IN HIS COMIC ENTITLED "PATTON".
THIS IS A HOLY GRAIL RECORD IN ABSOLUTE TOP CONDITION.
ALL RECORDS PLAY GRADED USING A STANTON 500-ll CARTRIDGE USING A 3.5TE STYLUS.
I AM CURRENTLY SELLING RECORDS FROM LEGENDARY COLLECTOR DON KENT'S RECORD COLLECTION. DON ASKED ME TO DO THIS BEFORE HE PASSED. DON WAS THE FOUNDER OF MAMLISH RECORDS, FLYIN' CROW AND COUNTRY TURTLE. HE BEGAN COLLECTING BLUES RECORDS AS A YOUNG MAN WHILE LIVING IN CHICAGO WHILE WORKING AT BOB KOESTER'S STORE THE JAZZ RECORD MART. DON AMASSED ONE OF THE GREATEST COLLECTIONS OF BLUES, JAZZ AND COUNTRY RECORDS DURING HIS LIFETIME. HE WAS MY FRIEND AND IT'S AN HONOR TO PASS THESE RECORDS ON TO A NEW GENERATION OF COLLECTORS. - JOHN HENEGHAN
