After years of consideration I've come to the conclusion that, within limits, gear is more important as a topic of conversation than as a way of making music. It's just not that important - Chris Smither

Patton as Elder J.J. Hadley as well for Prayer of Death, also likely a Paramount marketing ploy.

I don't think "some dissension there" is right that really sounds like a stretch to me, logically and a little bit phonetically.

Super Electrical Recordings! / Fast and Funky
« Last post by Lignite on August 02, 2020, 06:11:13 PM »
Well, my day is made. I received a record collection from a friend who is downsizing and in it was a copy of the LP Fast And Funky on Blue Goose from 1971 by Larry Johnson. This is a very hard record to locate and is kind of holy grail material for Piedmont Blues aficionados. The guy sure had the feel and knew his way around the acoustic Piedmont style. A better album I could not recommend. It is too bad that it is not more widely available. It is a classic for all times.

John Lee Hooker as Texas Slim.  Slim's Stomp is a great side.

Hi all,
I believe that some, if not all of Charlie Patton's religious numbers were released with him identified as "Elder Hadley".
All best,

You're right, Harry--that similarity hadn't occurred to me.  Thanks for pointing that out.
All best,

On the other hand, some (later?) musicians like John Lee Hooker recorded with multiple pseudonyms for various small record companies to avoid breaching recording deals trying to "own" the artist.
 

I think Buddy Guy recorded for Delmark once as "Friendly Chap" when he was already signed to Chess Records.

It kinda sounds like the song "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water".

Interestingly enough, Big Bill Broonzy never had a record released under his full name before WWII.  He was always just Big Bill. except:

   Sammy Sampson for the dime store labels Perfect, Oriole, and Romeo
   Big Bill Johnson for Gennett and Champion
   Big Bill Broomsley for a 2 song session for Paramount

After the war, he was generally listed as Big Bill Broonzy, except for

   A session for Hub in 1945 where he was Little Sam (a reference to Sammy Sampson?)
   Big Bill for Columbia sessions from 1945 - 1947
