“Oh, Death!” combines several distinctly American musical forms: old ragtime blues, contemporary jazz, and country. Four original and six derivative songs make up this CD. The early blues work originates with creators like Willie McTell “”Born to Die”), the Mississippi Sheiks (“I’ll Get Along Somehow”), and Gus Cannon’s Jug Stompers (“Last Chance Blues”).

The title track is a traditional dirge originating in southern Appalachia. The original song “Alchemy” is a jazz arrangement. “If You’se a Viper,” a song about smoking weed in the early Jazz Age, was composed by Stuff Smith, and was recorded by him with his Onyx Boys in 1936.

“Stop and Listen” is from the Mississippi Sheiks, a 1930s country blues group. “Rough Stretch of Time” and “Songmill” are homegrown blues and country songs.

“Love Lines” is a rambling monologue, turned into an upbeat folk rock song.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
