  1. It's great that you chose one that isn't heard very often, Frank. He was one pre-war bluesman who really benefited from being latched on to by those English rock 'n' rollers in the '60s. I bought the complete Columbia box when it first came out.

    1. Thanks, Marie. It's one of my favorites. It wasn't on the early Columbia LP King of the Delta Blues Singers; a friend of mine discovered it on one of those early schizophrenically programmed LPs that Historical or Biograph or similar labels put out and played it for me. Been on my top RJ list ever since.
