I agree with you, dj.  I've never considered it certain that Sam and Charley Patton had the same father.  It may be, too, that at that time and place, the "look" that Bo and Charley shared was not all that uncommon, with a fair amount of intermingling of white, black and native Americans.
All best,
Johnm

Wow I've never seen that photo before, I thought the only Mississippi Sheiks one available was the one with the three of them stood together.

I managed to find all of Bo Carters recordings through Document + Emusic, I would say that he is my favorate solo artist of the 1930's by far.

I was not familiar with Bo until this year, but that was corrected thanks to exposue at shows from Paul Rishell and Frank Fotusky.  His stuff is fun to play-- all those nice partial chords up the neck.

I have the double cd set (36 tracks) on Classic Blues, called Bo Carter the Essential. Are there any opinions on this set? I love the music and playing. How does it sound compared to the Documents? Any insights would be greatly apprpeciated.

If Im not mistaken you have this cd set?



It's a document release so all the songs in theory should sound the same, though i would recommend getting the full document five volumes as then you can make your own assertion on his music, most other CD compilations are too inadequate in my opinion when concerning Bo Carter. The worst one was one in my opinion was released on Itunes which had some poor remastering called "Pussy Cat Blues"  (which funnily enough had the title censored to "P***Y Cat Blues")

Yes, Cooljack, thats the one I have. I think it sounds really great. I will check out the other Documents as you suggest. Thanks a lot for your insight.

Not too long ago, I emailed JSP records asking if they had any plans for a BC issue, but they said no - I'm kinda surprised, since I figure he's up there with the McTells, Fullers, etc, & easily warrants a boxset,IMO; maybe if a few others pestered them?..

Bo Carter & Robert Wilkins are two guys that I got into specifically because John Miller had done lessons on them. I figured, if they're good enough for John, they're good enough for me.

New to me too. I note that Neil Slaven compiled and annotated it so I'll ask him if he knows the provenance.

It's new to me, too, but it's obvious that it has been in circulation long enough to have served as the basis of the cover to the "Essential Bo Carter" CD shown earlier in this thread.
All best,

The photo of Bo standing with his guitar featured on the front of the new JSP boxset has been published before,if my mind serves me correctly.I think it was in the book"Nothing but the Blues" Edited by Lawrence Cohn.
