He said, “listen, God, I ain’t gonna do it no more,
I ain’t gone do it no more”

Really the Country Blues Classics

Bukka White made two sides for Alan Lomax while incarcerated at Camp No. 10 on Parchman Farm, both featuring impassioned vocals and piercing slide guitar. They went unissued until 1967 when Bernard Klatzko issued them on a vinyl 78 on his “revitalized” Herwin label, and later on a Herwin LP. Not much reissued since, but right up there with White’s best.
