Number One is at the station,
Number Two way out on the road

This seems to be a cross between an early attempt at “Brutal Hearted Woman” and Johnny’s version of Sunnyland Slim’s Doctor Clayton-esque whoops in the Sunnyland song posted earlier today.

Johnny Shines • No Name Blues • 1953

Johnny Shines, vocal/guitar; Walter Horton, harmonica; Al Smith, bass. Recorded in Chicago, 22 Jan 1953. 
Song so titled, I guess, because it was never originally issued. . . .

Thanks to Steve Franz for inspiring me to go back and listen to this stuff!
