Bessie Tucker (also a Texan) recorded "Mean Old Jack Stropper Blues" in 1928 or 1929. I thought I had a copy of it, but I can't put my hands on it, so I can't make any meaningful comment.
Oddly, I don't think any performance of St James Infirmary by Mance has ever been issued on LP or CD -- the movie's the only place I've heard it from him.

Reading your post on jack stroppers, I had the oddest feeling, Bunker Hill, of "I know this has been posted on before". Fortunately, I was able to find it. It is in the Lil' Son Jackson thread, page 1, over on page 3 of the Main Forum. Sorry, I don't know how to do the link.
