Percy Mayfield - Poet Laureate of the Blues flac mp3
Singer-songwriter Percy Mayfield was known as Poet Laureate of the Blues, and his widely recorded compositions, have become standards in American popular music. Born in Minden, Louisiana, Mayfield wrote poems as a boy and set them to music, but because his mother didn't approve of blues, he sang only in church. He left home at 15 and hoboed around the country on freight trains before settling in Los Angeles in 1942. Several years later, in 1947, he took his blues song Two Years of Torture to Supreme Records with the hope that Jimmy Witherspoon would record it, but he ended up cutting.
A poet laureate (plural: poets laureate) is a poet officially appointed by a government or conferring institution, typically expected to compose poems for special events and occasions. Albertino Mussato of Padua and Francesco Petrarca (Petrarch) of Arezzo, both now part of Italy, were the first to be crowned poets laureate after the classical age, respectively in 1315 and 1342. In Britain, the term dates from the appointment of Bernard André by Henry VII of England.
