For "Snowing And Raining", both Alec Seward and Louis Hayes were playing out of A position in standard tuning. Slim starts out stating his problem, and Jelly offers no sympathy, as per usual. They worked so well this way, and they continue to alternate verses once they start singing. Most of their cuts are pretty short, and they remind me of episodes of "The Beverly Hillbillies" in that they don't so much end, as they do stop - JohnM, Guitar Slim & Jelly Belly lyrics thread

Greasy Greens

Just a more or less straight ahead version of Pink Anderson's great recording. Excavated from a defunct piece of recording software on my i-phone.

That sounded good. I've always loved that song and I really enjoyed listening to your version.

That's great, Mr O'Muck. I've played it a few of times.
Do you think this rhythm qualifies as a cakewalk? It kind of reminds me of Cakewalk into Town a bit.

Another question - with Pink Anderson coming from South Carolina does anyone think he might have been singing Creasy Greens?

I didn't know such a creature existed!

But now that I do I will have to listen more carefully and see what these subway battered ears reveal. Thanks for the tip. As for a cakewalk, could be, but I don't know enough about the cakewalk form to say for sure. Perhaps JohnM knows....

Of course the record I got the song from, the stupendous
"Gospel, Blues and Street Songs"
Riverside RLP 148
Lists it as Greasy Greens. I may change it to Creasy though just to satisfy my taste for the obscure and exotic.
Actually you've got me wondering now whether this might have been a paid advertisement for a local grower of Creasy Greens. Hmmmm.
