Crippled Turkey

  1. I love this and have to keep coming back for another listen! Unfortunately, it's not on the 4-disc Proper set that I have. It's so unlike any of the other tunes that I've heard by them. Marie

  2. Nice, innit. Hearkening back to their earlier days, it's just Bob Wills, fiddle; Sleepy Johnson and Leon McAuliffe, guitars. It's from a three-day recording session in 1936 that yielded such classics as "She's Killing Me," "Steel Guitar Rag," "What's the Matter with the Mill," "Fan It," "Right or Wrong," and "Swing Blues #1," among many others. And it was never issued in the day.
