“Promised Land” combines old blues, folk songs, an early rock and roll tune, and an original ballad.
“Tell Old Bill” appears in Carl Sandburg’s “American Songbag” in 1927. I’ve done a jazzy arrangement.
“Married Life Blues” was recorded in the 1930s by Bill Cox. It’s also done by “high and lonesome” Roscoe Holcomb.
“See That My Grave is Kept Clean” is a blues song by Blind Lemon Jefferson. He recorded it in 1927.
“Promised Land” was written by Chuck Berry and recorded in 1964 on his album “St. Louis to Liverpool.”
“Muskrat” is a traditional folksong recorded by Frank Proffitt and others.
“Memphis Rounder Blues” was written and performed by Frank Stokes in 1929.
“Jolie Blon” is my adaptation of a traditional Cajun song.
“Little Brass Wagon” is a traditional folksong.
“One More Chance” is adapted from the work of “Texas Ragtime” Henry Thomas.
“She is More to Be Pitied Than Censured” is an original ballad, not to be confused with the traditional song of the same name.
