>Sam Chatmon

Here’s a very good country blues record by Sam Chatmon, recorded in the seventies, at the end of his career. To me he really is one of the great blues patriarchs. (There’s not so many blues artists who grew a beard like Sam when he got old, and it looks great…)http://www.mediafire.com/file/nayyweuhwjz/Blues when it rains.zip
