“Delta Slide” refers to two songs on this CD, one adapted from the work of Mississippi John Hurt and the other from the work of Tommy Johnson. The Slidin’ Delta was a train that ran near Hurt’s home town of Avalon, Mississippi.

“How Long Blues” is an early blues tune performed and adapted by many artists. It may have originated with Leroy Carr or Pinetop Perkins. “Shuckin’ Sugar” originates with the playing of Blind Lemon Jefferson. “I’m Leavin’ Town” was first recorded in 1927 by Will Harris of Glendora, Mississippi.

“Sorry To See Her Go” is an original song. “Blood in My Eyes for You” is my adaptation of a song by the Mississippi Sheiks. “Mean Mistreatin’ Mama” is a slow blues groove I’ve adapted from the work of Elmore James. “Come into my Kitchen” originates with the playing of Robert Johnson.

Dean Rathje: voice, guitars, dobro, mandolin, banjo, piano, bass.
