With apparently cleaner copies/transfers of two versions of Lemon's Matchbox Blues, as it is listed twice on the track list.

Hi all,
I had thought the two recently discovered Jaydee Short songs were going to be on this calendar, so I'm a bit disappointed that they are not.  It's interesting that they keep turning up previously undiscovered records of Blake accompanying female singers.  Or am I wrong in thinking that the two Chocolate Brown tunes have never previously been re-issued?
All best,

I believe John Tefteller said that the Jaydee Short numbers would be on next year's calendar (i.e. 2016), as it was too late to get them on the 2015. The Chocolate Brown sides have been reissued, usually under Irene Scruggs rather than the pseudonym. "Cherry Hill" is the first piece Blake recorded in E, if I remember correctly.
