Bonus CD on Rough Guide to Blind Blake
« on: March 26, 2019, 11:42:14 AM »
Hi

I just purchased a download on The Rough Guide to Blind Blake, which comes with an additional 24 tracks from an out of print Rough Guide to Ragtime Blues & Hokum. Sadly, none of the artists are credited.

I recognize a number of the artists, but I was wondering if anyone has a track list for that record.

It is no longer listed on the labels website, nor can I turn up any info using any search terms I can think of.

Thoughts?

I'm sure I can suss out the credits with time -- I already recognize some -- but I'd rather not spend that much time if there is a better way. Check out the screen shot.

Ain't that always the way?

Thanks.

33 Tim Wilkins (Robert Wilkins)
34 Willie Walker

I think the "Adam And Eve In The Garden" might be Tommie Bradley and James Cole.
All best,

Thanks, John, I'm sure you're right ? I was going from memory and couldn't come up with that one.

Bessie Smith seems a bit out of place on that list? thought it might have been Scrapper Blackwell's version.

Hi

Thanks everyone. I couldn't find the list on Discogs, so I appreciate it.

BTW: I got clever and queried the record company. They responded with the track list within a day. Nice.

And, yeah, it is an odd assortment of tracks. Seems to be a sampling of tracks from some of the other Rough Guide.

Anyway now I have both Take 1 and 2 of Willie Walker's South Carolina Blues. Gonna study that for sure.

Again, thanks. Y'all are the greatest!

Good luck on S.C. Rag ? not too hard to figure out what he's doing, real hard to do it!
