I've always liked that Frank Edwards song; thanks for sending the video. Interesting though...he plays it in A on the recording I have (National Downhome Blues Festival) and in E on this video.

Yes, you should look for that CD -- he plays it better on there. Maybe he was younger then or maybe he couldn't find his capo for the video. I still can't understand anything he's singing though -- any ideas, anyone? I decipher a lot of old recordings, but man, this modern one is tough!

In person he seemed to always play in in E like that video and that is sorta the way everyone learned it from him in a circle of folks in Atlanta. I learned it that way from him in the early 90s except I do it without the barred B to A turnaround he does. Man, you never miss folks real bad till they're gone but I wish I'd learned a lot more from him when I was hanging around. There's a really nice guitar player Jim R. in town that I believe filmed that originally. I've never been able to get a copy so that was a real treat. Mr Frank was a really good man. I've been performing Chicken Raid for about a dozen years but I'd love to get all the words to "Got to get together" because I never ever was able to completely understand Mr Frank when he sang it. But I did figure out Chicken Raid and I've had people say they drove all the way to where I was playing to hear that song. I only have two CDs by him. One is the older 70s one "Done some Travelin" and the new one "Chicken Raid". Also if anyone finds any other recordings I would love to know. His old 78rpm sounding stuff which was probably recorded in the early 1940s was fantastic and revealed a tight, super powerful player in my opinion. In those last years what I heard was whittled down to the very essence of his music. Still very masterful but very different than the few really old clips they put on the end of that Chicken Raid cd. Anyway thanks to the folks that posted those.

John Hurt's gravesite.





People are leaving nickels.

I am wondering where this comes from?

Did John Hurt sing a lyric "leave me nickels by my grave" or something?


Anyway, a touching video.

Monday Morning Blues has "Mister change a dollar give me a lucky dime", can't think of any nickel refs though.

Those "Blues Breaks" that Robert Mugge and I made for "Year of the Blues" are on youtube now. Mississippi Public Broadcasting sponsored them but they also were shown on many other public TV stations. One-minute films before and after the long Scorsese features. Here's the first one; you can find the rest by searching on "Mugge" or "Cheseborough" on youtube. Enjoy! SC

No problem, Mike, we never actually explained it officially. I've added a how-to post in Site Announcements. Regular links are fine too though...

I was fortunate enough to meet and 'jam' with Carl Martin in a hotel room in Toronto in either 1970 or 71. Martin Bogan and Armstrong were playing the Mariposa Folk Festival at the time. He played mandolin exclusively, and it was mostly ragtimey/vaudeville type tunes that he played,as well as things like Old Joe Clark. To my eternal shame I didn't have the gumption,at the time, to identify him as the same Carl Martin who'd recorded in the thirties. I remember I was struggling to learn his version of Crow Jane at the time, laboriously lifting the tone arm and repeating the grooves containing the second chord in the piece. And there he was, in the flesh, sitting next to me on a bed in a hotel room! Aah well, life is full of missed opportunities...

Did the Even Dozen ever actually perform?  I thought it was just a studio one-off. 

one of the folks in the edjb was "flannel grimes" he sang evolution mamma dont you make a monkey out of me. he performed around denver in the 70's/ great finger style player and guitar teacher at the well known underground bama-lama-rama guitar studios.
