“Just A Dream” is made up of my contemporary renditions of a set of nine old blues tunes. “Just A Dream” comes from the repertoire of Big Bill Broonzy. “Drive Away Blues” was written and recorded by blues legend Blind Willie McTell. “Whoopee Blues” is derived from the work of King Solomon Hill (an alias for Joe Holmes, self-taught Mississippi guitarist, 1897 – 1949).

“Worn Down Daddy Blues” is a humorous look at splitting up by African American singer and vaudeville performer Ida Cox (1896 – 1967). “Sittin’ On Top of the World” was written in the 1930s by Walter Vinson and Lonnie Chatmon, core members of the Mississippi Sheiks. “I’ve Been Treated Wrong” comes from the repertoire of Robert Brown (1910 – 1966), known professionally as Washboard Sam.

“I Will Turn Your Money Green” comes from a 1928 recording by Furry Lewis. “Black Mattie” comes from the work of Sleepy John Estes. “Operator Blues” comes from the recordings of Andrew and Jim Baxter.

Dean Rathje: vocals, guitars, slide guitars, piano, bass.
