I thought, 'I'm gonna get me up a one man band.' ... I decided I'd get into it and might make me some money. I didn't know, I thought I might get lucky enough to get something out of it. If I didn't, I'd just be the same old Jesse. I wouldn't cry about it. I figured I was gonna live till I die anyway - Jesse Fuller

Nice job, Harriet. I hadn't heard a number of those. Is the Burnside version with the harmonica another George Mitchell recording? The one I have is solo.

Rollin' and Tumblin' is surely one of the few songs where you can say, "I've got another one-string version." Sadly not on youtube, but Moses Williams does a cool one string version that can be found on Drop On Down in Florida.

Thanks Uncle Bud, Stefan Wirz attributed to a Mitchell according via a reference of according to : Fancourt & McGrath 2012, p. 96, and with the note "this recording first published on and taken from Revival LP RVS 1009 (UK 1971) "Hard Time Mississippi" --- never re-released on CD". There's a screen of the referred to LP label during the presentation.

I will see if I can find the Mose Williams version. I would like to hear it. I found a clip of a video of him on youtube which I like alot.

I've attached the Williams version here. If I may make a pitch - Drop On Down in Florida is a very interesting set with some unusual and fine music and little known players. I'm a happy customer.

Mike Seeger also does a slide banjo version of this song. And there's a Napoleon Strickland fife and drum version that I'd have to listen to harder to pick out the tune.

Whoa thanks so much for the clip and the referral to both the album and the Dust-to-Digital site - I would be interested in the Florida compilation so thanks for that as well.

Hi all,
I thought I'd do my own version of "Rolled and Tumbled".  It's attached below.
All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
I thought of another "Song Family" version of "Rolled and Tumbled", and a particularly strong one:  Robert Johnson's "Traveling Riverside Blues".
All best,
Johnm

John - I love the chord you're using on the opening lines - really opens things up...  lots of ingredients in here!

Well done, John! It certainly merits inclusion in the next volume of the "Bellingham Field Recordings!"

Thanks, Zohar, Frank, John D., and Stuart.  I'm glad you guys like it.  Re the opening phrase, I realized, Frank, that nobody sings to the IV chord there--they sing to the I chord right through that phrase, so I decided to play to the I chord, too, only acknowledging that IV chord with its root in the bass, sort of like Robert Pete Williams does sometimes.  Anyhow, . . . .
All best,
Johnm

Here's me doing it in my younger days (1994). I think it's one of the first slide tunes I tried to learn back in the '60s when I used to play with a kitchen knife on a Harmony F hole guitar with a severely warped neck. I always just kind of 'beat it out' as primitively as I could.
