Looks like a very good start fellars.? Please try not to Repeat a selection already made.? We are compiling a list, not taking a vote.? Again, you are not limited to 10 songs or 1 submission.? We want to get enough great songs to pick from Randomly and have  a different hour of music each time.?

Hot damn - that's a good'un!

I'm starting to think that there are certain guys that it doesn't matter what you pick, but you should hear lots from them.  The guys I'm thinking of generally have large, fairly varied repertoires:

Blind Lemon Jefferson
Charlie Patton
Blind Blake
Rev. Gary Davis
Mississippi John Hurt
Blind Willie McTell
Bo Carter

Each of these guys is almost a whole world of music in and of themselves!

Just a quick few,I hope there are no repeats and I'll think of more tomorrow-

How Long, how long - Carr\Blackwell
Seminole blues - Tampa Red
Pick Poor Robin Clean - Blind Willie McTell
Big Bill's Blues - Big Bill Broonzy
Sittin' on top of the world - Mississippi Shieks
Roll and tumble - Hambone Willie Newburn
West Texas Woman - Alex Moore
M & O - Walter Davis
