“Trouble in Mind” is another oldie, written by pianist/composer/producer Richard M. Jones and first recorded in 1924. It’s become a standard like “Careless Love” or “St. Louis Blues” and has been recorded innumerable times since the 20s by artists as diverse as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Big Bill Broonzy, the Hackberry Ramblers, Duane Eddy, and Marianne Faithfull. Here we have Tommy Duncan “all down and out,” fronting Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys from a 1936 session that also produced classics like “Steel Guitar Rag” and “Basin Street Blues.”
