This week’s Blues What Am selection is another “long thought-to-be lost” 78, recently discovered in the cabinet of a vintage 1920s record player in the southern United States. “Tar Road Blues” and its flip “Flagin’ it to Georgia” were both in pretty rough shape but the folks at Blues Images did a terrific clean-up job and we are now able to hear two of J. D. Short’s best sides, almost ninety years after they were recorded. Have a listen to “Tar Road Blues”:
