Hambone Willie Newbern wasn't as well thought of in the area as maybe he should have been... when Yank's mother heard he'd traded the pig for a mandolin she said 'Well, that's OK son, this winter, when we're all eating meat, you can eat that mandolin' - Yank Rachell, as told by Steve James, Port Townsend 97

Charlie Pickett - underrated & under-recorded
« on: May 02, 2013, 02:29:46 AM »
There are tons of musicians who never got the attention they deserved, but I feel like Charlie Pickett is an extremely invidious example since his four recordings are probably the most powerful blues I'll ever hear, especially the song below. His voice is very dramatic and intense, he plays like a boss, and four songs were enough for him to demonstrate impressive diversity in terms of styles and keys.
Can't get enough of this guy!!

Roig, I think a search through the archives will reveal a few discussion on Mr.Pickett. He was good.
