When a man gets in trouble,
every woman throws him down

Jaybird Coleman • Man Trouble Blues • 1930

“Coffee Grinder Blues,” the other side of this record, can be heard here.

Article (in Italian) and photos of LP cover artist R. Crumb can be seen here.


  1. I love those Yazoo comps and the sound quality on this one is terrific! I haven't heard too many harmonica players with piano accompaniment. Thanks for posting it.

    1. Thanks for the comment Ms. V.G. You pretty much can't beat Yazoo's sound on these old 78s. Great record, both sides. And the piano player remains unknown.

      Jaybird Coleman also recorded an unaccompanied version of "Man Trouble" earlier. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to posting it, too.
