Mississippi Fred McDowell 'John Henry'

Another disciple of the Great One.You know I fell in love with the music of Charley Patton before I heard it? I used to have trouble at the age of 13-14 getting hold of blues records but the local library had a few good books on the subject and one they had was John Fahey's book on Charley Patton with a biography, lyrics and even chords and so forth - I was fascinated.
