Robert Richard - Banty Rooster Blues

Apart from track listings I couldn't find much about Robert Richard so I've added the back cover with all the info. Excellent country blues from Detroit recorded in a very informal setting.
Giving this a listen all I can it's a crime it hasn't had a US/European re-release, only a long deleted P-Vine CD.
Frits deserves at least a  couple of beers for sharing this rarity with us.

Found this at a flea market for a couple bucks, having no idea what it was. Just got home, haven't listened to it yet but a quick google search revealed this Collectors Frenzy link: http://collectorsfrenzy.com/details/230972172214/ROBERT_RICHARD_Banty_Rooster_Blues_RARE_DETROIT_HARP_MAN_Barrelhouse_Records

I feel pretty good about my purchase :D

Nice find Adam G. It's been a long time since I found anything rare at a fleamarket. Any chance you can share a rip with us?

Robert Richard has recorded very few under his name: this Barrelhouse LP featured on this blog and a handful of 45s/78s that you can find gathered on my blog

That's all!
Of course Robert has also recorded as a sideman notably behind Bobo Jenkins
