Aristocrat Records’ blues recording artist “Big Charlie” Bradix was born on 31 March 1911. The recording issued on Aristocrat was one of four recordings made in 1948, of which two were leased to Chess. (The others were issued on the Blue Bonnet label.) Bradix was then signed to Modern but his recordings for them appear to have not been issued. Charles Bradix died in Dallas on 21 August 1981. I have not been able to identify any photographs of Mr Bradix.
