Charley Patton article in new Living Blues

"Revisiting the Worlds of Charley Patton" by Jim O'Neal. Lots of interesting stuff, much of it new. Looks especially closely at the "Tom Rushen Blues" tale, including interviews with people who knew Holloway and Rushing. In LB issue #252, the current one. Cheers, Chezz
