I got a cigar box, I cut a hole in the top, put a board and nail it on there. And I taken four nails, put wire on 'em from a screen door for strings. I couldn't play it, but I rapped the sides, hootin' and hollerin'. I thought I was doin' something you know. - Furry Lewis recalls his first guitar

Hi all,
Here is another configuration in the Orbit of the Mississippi Sheiks that Frankie added to Country Blues Lyrics.  Since their tunes are all instrumentals, like the Mississippi Mud Steppers, I thought I'd move them to the Main Forum and feature them there.
All best,
Johnm

All of the above were recorded during a Columbia/Okeh field trip to San Antonio Texas in June of 1930.  Walter Vincson and Bo Chatmon on guitar, Lonnie Chatmon on violin.  Like the Mississippi Mud Steppers sides, these were released on Okeh's hillbilly series.
