Legendary blues artists! Iconic label! Plays great! Only known copy!
High opening bid reflects minimum accepted.
There are a few copies of these sides on Gennett and Champion, but this is the only known copy on Black Patti. Probably pressed from the stampers before the Gennetts and Champions, the sound is breathtaking -- music is loud and crisp with light tics and pops from a few small scratches. Few rub spots, but mostly glossy grooves.
This gem is from the collection of long-time collector Ken Swerilas who passed away last week. Over the next few months I will be auctioning other high end jazz, blues and country pieces from Ken's collection for Ken's family. Many of the records are choice rarities that are seldom offered.
Auction will run to close. Do not pay until you hear from me so proper shipping and insurance can be arranged. Full insurance required. Domestic shipping only by USPS Express Mail, Fed Ex Overnight or local pick up.
