Well, I ain't got no voice, but I'll give you the words of an old Memphis song.' William Brown began to sing in his sweet true country voice, poking in delicate passages at every pause, like the guitar was a second voice commenting with feeling on the ironic words of the blues... This was the real blues... The blues in print give you the skeleton only. If you've never heard the blues, get yourself a record and listen and then come back and join us... William Brown's song can last until the morning... - Alan Lomax, The Land Where the Blues Began

Dear Weenies and fellow nerds,
my Duo Black Patti has just released a new record (on CD/LP) called "Satan's Funeral" with 11 spirituals and a fantastic artwork drawn by Robert Crumb.

Check it out via bandcamp: https://blackpatti.bandcamp.com/album/satans-funeral

Enjoy and all the best to you all,
Ferdinand "Jelly Roll" Kraemer

Just had a listen and it sounds great, good work!
I'll be in touch about getting a vinyl copy when they're ready.

Congratulations, great record.
Did you just ask Crumb to the artwork? I think he still lives in France.

Thank you so much! Yes, Crumb lives in France. He heard demo recordings of the record and was willing to draw an artwork, which is extremely generous and a big honor for us.

You're two white guys and you call your act "Black Patti"? Pretty bold, pal.

Exactly, but it is not an "act", it is a band.
The band name pays tribute to the short-lived record label that recorded black and white artists alike and everything in between. As far as Madame Sissirietta Jones is concerned, we're neither black nor female - that is true.
