Sittin’ in a bar, drinkin’ a jar in London (with Charley Patton, no less)…
- Beer: Abott Ale
- Bar: The Zetland Arms, South Kensington
- Book: “Delta Blues” by Ted Gioia
This is an EXCELLENT book if you are a fan of prewar blues. I am learning so much. Ted’s writing is a rhythmic and knowing prose. I feel like there is dirt under my feet and train whistles are blowing in the distance when I am reading this. I just bought this Charley Patton record (seen in the photo). It is my beer, bar, book talisman for this session.
