Editorial Reviews

This CD is my tribute to the prewar blues. "Chicken Roost Behind the Moon," "Downtown Blues," and "It Won't Be Long" are my adaptations of songs by blues artist Frank Stokes (1888-1955), who played with the Beale Street Sheiks in Memphis. I've adapted "Meat Shakin' Woman" and "What's That Smells Like Fish?" from the work of Blind Boy Fuller (1907-1941), one of the Piedmont blues artists. "Your Town" is a new original work. "If I Call You Mama" is my adaptation of a song by Luke Jordan (1892-1952), who recorded a handful of tracks with Victor Records in 1927-29. "I Heard the Voice of a Pork Chop" is my adaptation of a song by Jim Jackson (1884-1937), who in 1927 recorded with Vocalion Records. "Pretty Mama Blues" is adapted from the work of Gus Cannon (1883-1979), who recorded with Blind Blake in 1927 and later with Cannon's Jug Stompers.
