78 RPM -- Charley Patton, Paramount 12792, E Blues
ARTIST: Charley Patton
LABEL: Paramount 12792
TITLES: Pony Blues / Banty Rooster Blues
While Charley Patton Paramounts are rare and some of the most desirable of pre-war blues 78s, most that have been offered are in V'ish condition or lower. It's not often that the opportunity to acquire a Charley Patton in E condition comes along. Here's a rarity among rarities. Strong pressing, and music is loud, vibrant and articulate both sides. If you'd only been hearing the dull, flat sound of a worn 78, you'd think Patton had just taken elocution lessons. Very slight swish at the beginning. There are some very light superficial scratches here and there. On "Pony Blues" these scratches cause 5 tics in the middle, and a small patch of them (1/4" of grooves, 1" wide) are audible at very end, roughly the last 15 grooves. "Banty Rooster Blues" plays flawlessly beginning to end.
