Blues When It Rains
"Mississippi delta blues singer and guitarist Sam Chatmon (1897-1983) first gained popularity in the 1930s with the Mississippi Sheiks, a band he formed with his brothers (he was also the half-brother of Charley Patton). After dropping from public view for many years, Chatmon was 'rediscovered' in 1960 in Hollandale, Miss. by Paul Oliver and Chris Strachwitz. During this period, he made recordings with John Fahey and Nick Perls for Blue Goose Records and appeared at numerous folk festivals. He spent the rest of his life in Hollandale, where the recordings collected on this album were made."
