“Next-Door Neighbor Blues” is primarily historic blues--cheerful ragtime, sweet and sad acoustic, upbeat rocking. These songs date back from the late 19th to mid-20th centuries. “Glory Hole” is the sole original tune on this CD.

“All-Around Man” derives from the work of Bo Carter, father of the “dirty blues.” Carter was a member of the Mississippi Sheiks.

“Last Kind Words” comes from the repertoire of Geeshie Wiley, an American female blues singer and guitarist in the early 1930s.

“Dear Sweet Mama” was written by Sleepy John Estes.

“Dollar Bill Blues” was written by Charley Jordan, a St. Louis blues singer, songwriter, and guitarist.

“This Will Bring You Back” was first recorded by the Memphis Jug Band.

“Mean Mistreatin’ Mama” originated with American blues guitarist Elmore James.

“Next-Door Neighbor Blues” comes from Robert Lee McCoy, who also performed as Robert Nighthawk.

“Glory Hole” is an original song about playing in a rock band at a country ballroom.

“See See Rider” is one of the oldest known blues songs, first recorded by Ma Rainey in 1924.

“Rye Whiskey” is an early country song, related to another early country song, “Jack o’ Diamonds.” I play it here with a slow blues beat.

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