"Shake That Thing" is two original songs and six highly original adaptations of early blues, jazz, and country blues. "Eternal Light" is a Gospel tune, and "Skiffle Boogie" is an original instrumental with washboard, oatmeal box, and other skiffle percussion.

"Rising Sun Blues" is an early blues tune of unknown authorship. "Shake That Thing" is adapted from a 1925 recording by banjoist and singer Charlie Jackson. "Shake 'em On Down" originates with the playing of Bukka White, a Delta blues guitarist and singer. "False-Hearted Lover" is an old country tune that I've put to a beat and augmented with slide guitar licks. "I Want Some of Your Pie" is a Blind Boy Fuller song I've adapted with drums and banjo.

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