This CD features jazz, blues, and country songs from the early 20th century. “Sadie Green” was recorded by the Memphis Jug Band in 1930. “Crow Jane” originated in the Piedmont region (the Carolinas and Virginia), and was first recorded by Julius Daniels in 1927. “Curly Headed Woman” is related to “Hesitation Blues,” a version of which was published by W. C. Handy in 1915. “Weeping Willow Blues” derives from the work of Blind Boy Fuller.
“Boogie Woogie Country Girl” was recorded by Big Joe Turner, a rock and roll pioneer. “Milwaukee Blues” is attributed to Charlie Poole but has many versions. “Poor Boy Long Way from Home” is fairly common old blues tune. My version owes something to Gus Cannon and his Jug Band Stompers. “Richland Woman Blues” comes from the work of Mississippi John Hurt.
“You Gotta Quit Kickin’ My Dog Around” began as “The Hound Dawg Song,” written and performed in the late 1800s by James Bland, an educated minstrel who also wrote “Carry Me Back to Old Virginny.” “Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens” was recorded in 1946 by Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five.
