After consulting his preacher to make sure there was nothing sinful about playing blues records on the radio Mr. Wright decided to give it a try. He did it six days a week almost until his death on what became one of America's longest-running radio programs. From 6 o'clock to 9, he was the 'Soul Man' playing the blues. For the last two hours he was 'Brother Early' playing gospel music - Early Wright, obituary to the DJ, WROX Clarksdale

It's on the Rounder CD accompanying the book   

I also attach a version of the blues ballad by John Cephas and Phil Wiggins ?
taken from the Smithsonian Folkways CD Classic African-American Ballads
