I just shot him once" - Frankie Baker, possibly the original Frankie, explaining how she dealt with Johnny, in the course of an unsuccessful lawsuit to collect damages over Republic Pictures' movie Frankie and Johnny.

Blind Blake and Irene Scruggs -- "Married Man Blues"
« on: September 25, 2011, 11:40:04 PM »
Anyone know the matrix number(s) for these two takes? I'm assuming somewhere in L-349 to L-352 based on B&GR but am curious. Also, does anyone know the story of where these came from? I seem to remember Tefteller's calendar just saying they were unreleased test pressings - it'd be interesting to know more.

I think I saw them in a Nauck?s VRA catalogue in ca. 2003 first, alongside the two Tommy Johnson test pressings and two of the "Hometown Skiffle" and others, blues and non blues related. I believe they are from a box of test pressings that was nearly abandonned in the Grafton area.

Thanks -- always nice to know the story behind the find (or at least some of it)!
