Charley Patton was a pioneering Delta Blues singer and guitarist and is widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Though he only recorded around 50 tracks in his entire career, he was a popular touring performer and his legend has only grown in the nearly 100 years since his voice and guitar were first pressed on shellac. Patton performed with and at times mentored such blues legends as Robert Johnson, and Chester Burnett (aka Howlin' Wolf). On Lord I'm Discouraged: The Gennett Records Recording Session, Richmond, IN June 1929, Wax Love collects all the recordings Patton made for the legendary label, the same label that released early jazz from Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington and tons of classic old-time and blues sessions. In just one day, June 14, 1929, Patton recorded 14 of the most famous Delta Blues sides in history. An essential collection for any fan of early acoustic blues.
