Episode 83 – Charley Patton’s Hand

I recently finished reading Do Not Sell At Any Price: The Wild, Obsessive Hunt for the World’s Rarest 78rpm Records – and it was an engaging read. Written by Amanda Petrusich, it chronicles well known collectors of 78 records, and in particular collectors who specialize in Pre-War Blues. Petrusich did an excellent job in connecting the music, history, fanaticism, and people who’ve saved this music from being lost to history. I wouldn’t read without a highlighter in hand as I wasn’t too versed in this era of music (outside of Robert Johnson) – and it was a fantastic way not only be entertained, but educated. The result of my dog-eared & Highlighted copy of Do Not Sell is this podcast.
