Charlie Poole day

One of the most prominent figures in old-time and early country music is Charlie Poole. The short-lived hell raiser from North Carolina cut together with his band, the North Carolina Ramblers, some very well-known and excellent sides for Columbia between 1925 and 1929, the year Poole broke up with Columbia. He died in 1931, leaving behind a live full of troubles, but also of wonderful music.
I compiled the following mp3 files from various sources. There are a lot of more files I found on the web I will post later on. Read more about Charlie Poole (in german) - click on the left bottom for english
