When Woody Guthrie was singing hillbilly songs on a little Los Angeles radio station in the late 1930s he used to mail out a small mimeographed songbook to listeners who wanted the words to his songs. On the bottom of one page appeared the following: This song is Copyrighted in U.S., under Seal of Copyright #154085, for a period of 28 years, and anybody caught singin' it without our permission, will be mighty good friends of our'n, cause we don't give a dern. Publish it. Write it. Sing it. Swing to it. Yodel it. We wrote it, that's all we wanted to do - Pete Seeger, on Woody, June 67

B.B. King on Sanford & Son!
« on: June 10, 2005, 02:19:57 PM »
Last night, I happened to catch B.B. King performing "St. Louis Blues" on Nick at Nite's TV Land. He sounded great and looked young; I'm guessing he was about 45 or so at the time. Red Foxx jumped up and sang "Hey, mama! Look at lil' sis'. Out in the backyard, shakin' like this!" It was great to see. B.B. was performing a rather up-tempo version of the song. Does anyone know if he ever recorded "St. Louis Blues"?
