Title: Eugene Rhodes
Post by: Blind Rev. Grapefruit Peter on July 26, 2009, 05:48:15 AM
Hi

I just heard Eugene Rhodes on the Juke Radio. Seems there is nowhere the record can be bought. Do any of you have any idea where I might find this record or at least the track Jelly-Jelly?

Regards
Peter

I just sent an e-mail to the man who runs the website. We'll see if this disc is back in stock. Rhodes' biography on Allmusic is very interesting.

Rhodes was recorded by Bruce Jackson at Indiana State Penn in March and July 1962. I once owned this LP but in 1972 sold it when offered a ridiculously large sum of money by a German friend. I did however take the precaution of making a cassette and photocopying the back sleeve. I'll see if I can find the photocopy and OCR the notes.

Hi all,
I still have the LP of Eugene Rhodes that Bunker Hill alludes to, and it is just as he says, a very nice album.  Eugene Rhodes, in addition to being a good player and singer, spoke beautifully, and as I recall, there are a couple of tracks where he talks about the Blues and his likes and dislikes in that realm.  He particularly admired the work of Buddy Moss.
Sandy Paton, who founded Folk Legacy Records, passed away in the past month, and I don't know if the Eugene Rhodes album survived into the CD era--in a way I would be surprised if it did, since it was an odd man out in the Folk Legacy catalog which focused primarily on Folk Music from New England and the British Isles.  They may have some relic copies of the album laying around though, you never know.  It's certainly worth checking if you admire Eugene Rhodes' music.
All best,
Johnm

Yes I've been at these pages as well. To find out it's out of stock. Tried to track the cd # but didn't have any luck.

Peter:

This is just a long shot and probably no help, but a dozen or so libraries have the LP in their holdings:

Thanks but I am totally digital. I have a summe cottage, and can bring all my music with me on discs, so LPs is not very attractive.

This may be somewhat off the topic of a discography...
but I LOVE the way Mr. Rhodes played the guitar.

So very choppy and rough.
was it Nick Perls that said of guitar playing that "too Choppy "
was a contradiction of terms ?
I quite agree...

I wonder if there is any way that we can listen to this album. I do not want to purchase a used LP for 95 dollars, and the cassette is no longer being manufactured.

I emailed the good folks at Folk Legacy.  If they still have rights to the material, and email deluge may get it on CDR if nothing else.

EUGENE RHODES Folk-Legacy FSA 12

V/g.   
Indiana State Penitentiary,
20-25 & 29/31 March
& 1-3 July 1962

If you see my Saviour   
Blues leaping from Texas   
Don?t talk me to death
Talkin? about my time   
Working on the levee   
Step it up and go   
Talk   
I keep wondering   
Jelly, jelly   
Dough rolling papa   
Who went out the back
See that my grave is kept clean   
I?m gonna find me a woman   
If she?s your woman   
Fast life
Whosoever will, let him come


I have found the cassette I made of the LP (see earlier post). I will attempt to individually mp3 each song.

I have a copy of the original release and would be willing to part with it.
