Editorial Reviews

My Wandering Boy introduces two new original songs, presents old blues and jazz in new and original adaptations, and includes several old-time country songs. "River Ran Dry" and "The More You Become Like Me" are original works. "Motherless Children" may have originated with Blind Willie Johnson. "Arkansas Sheik" was played by The Skillet Lickers, Clayton McMichen, Riley Puckett, and others.

"My Gal Just Quit Me" derives from the singing and playing of early blues artist Luke Jordan, who recorded this song in 1929. "My Wandering Boy" may have originated with the Carter Family band. (I learned it from the singing of Sarah Gunning.) "Too Tight" is a nice jazz jump learned from the recordings of Blind Blake. "Champagne Charlie" is a music hall song from the 19th century composed by Alfred Lee, with lyrics by George Leybourne.

"Roving Gambling Man" is my adaptation of a song probably learned from one of the Lomax folksong collections. "Up in My Father's House" is a blues Gospel tune.
