Music Millennium

2012 four CD set. Bo Carter, was born Arminter Chatmon in 1893 or 1894. He had nine brothers. The house was full of stringed instruments. As the children grew they formed a band, playing square dances and parties. The Mississippi Sheiks (the family band) grew out of a partnership between Lonnie Chatmon (Bo's brother) and guitarist Walter Vincent. Bo established himself mainly as a solo travelling bluesman - but he was equally happy to perform with trusted colleagues. The Sheiks were discovered early in the new year of 1930. By that time, Bo had already made his recording debut (as Bo Chatman) a year earlier. Bo's material is characterized by wonderful ribaldry and cheerfulness - quite apart from his brilliant singing and guitar playing. Here's a glimpse of a lost world that exudes an energy and excitement that puts our age to shame.
