Well, I've been too busy movin' out and missed all the fun. You guys have covered a lot of my favs, but here's a few I don't think I saw:

Ragged and Dirty - one of those William Browns
Georgia Bound - Blind Blake
Broke Down Engine - Blind Willie McTell (I guess you all saw that comin')
Come Back Baby - Walter Davis
Cool Drink Of Water Blues - Tommy Johnson

And I'll have to listen to some Cannon's Jug Stompers to get another Noah Lewis number in there. And what to pick from Scrapper?
All for now.

OK Fellars, 

One thing this exercise illustrates is that even with 3,300 tracks in the Juke playlsit - there are some glaring holes. There are currently 96 tracks in "Classic Country Blues Hour".  The hour is scheduled (I have not updated the schedule page yet however) for Sundays 2-3pm and 7-8pm and Thursdays 2-3pm and 7-8pm.

Here are the tracks that were NOT on the Juke.  We have some work to do (and cannot believe some of the Blind Lemon tracks that are missing!)... but it is a very good start!

Missing in action:
Cairo Blues-Henry Spaulding
Right Of Way Blues-Blind Lemon Jefferson
Sloppy Drunk Again-Walter Davis w/Joe Williams and Henry Townsend
One Dime Blues - BLJ
Little Girl in Rome - Otto Virgial
Two Time Blues - Arthur Pettis
Matchbox Blues - BLind Lemon Jefferson
22-20 - Skip James
Black Rat Swing - Memphis Minnie
Bo Weevil Blues - Charlie Patton
Keep Your Hands Off Her - Lead Belly
Roll and tumble - Hambone Willie Newburn
West Texas Woman - Alex Moore
M & O - Walter Davis
Long Tall Mama - Big Bill Broonzy
Step It Up and Go - Blind Boy Fuller
Long, Tall Mama - Big Bill
Hot Dogs - Blind Lemon
Go Back to Your No Good Man - Lonnie Johnson
Aberdeen Mississippi Blues - Booker White
Mama, Quittin' and Leavin' - Funny Papa Smith
Fixin' to Die Blues - Bukka White (about as erie as Last Kind Words)
Come Back Baby - Walter Davis

Cheers,
slack

No Matchbox Blues (by Lemon, anyway) on the juke...  oh, woe!

The Otto Virgial is definitely there, however - search on Rome and it'll pop up.

Also, not sure what happened to BLJ - I've got the JSB 4 disk set which has these tunes of course - I think UB is playing tricks on me.  :P

cheers,

I see what happened - we only have Disks A and C on the juke, missing B and D, I'll fix that forthwith  - UB was playing tricks on me.   :P

cheers,
