“The Downtown Stomp” features half original and half derived works. The derived works are from the jug band era, from artists including Papa Charlie Jackson, who recorded “Shake That Thing” in 1926; the Memphis Jug Band, which recorded “Peaches in the Springtime” in 1928 and “The Downtown Stomp” in 1929; Washboard Sam’s “Soap & Water Blues;” and Gus Cannon’s Jug Stompers’ “Mule Get Up the Alley.”

The original works include the plaintive lyrical ballad “The Dead,” the wry “This Partying Life,” the lyrical “Shining Piece of Gold,” the mysterious “Shanty,” and the upbeat “Rusty Old Boat.”

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