We knows nothing much about the blues... we called it blues, we called it breakdowns, we called it blues and some people say it's square dances... We didn't know what it was; the achin'-hearted blues is slow, breakdowns is fast - Percy Thomas, who played in the Son Simms Four with Muddy Waters, interviewed by Paul Oliver, from Blues Off The Record

Here's a page on Gene Campbell with little bit of the biography that was found on him by researchers...

Hello-
I don't have anything to add about Gene Campbell. I've come across him a couple times on this site, but I hadn't heard that particular track before. I like those runs between vocal lines a lot. JohnM- I agree about his singing. Fantastic. Thank you for posting, Prof.
Take care

If this has been posted before I apologize. I did look but couldn't find it. Amazing, amazing stuff, and a real treat for Dock Boggs appreciators fixing to work on this song. That would be me. It's banjo but Dock's 'Country Blues' qualifies from the get-go for the 'Interesting Country Blues related video clips' thread.

Boy, I'm with you, Rivers. What a spooky sound, and what a singer!

Yep and yep. Then there's that elusive picking hand technique and sophisticated slightly-broken sense of time. He seems very relaxed and yet totally into it. It all adds up to a great performance, thank goodness Alan Lomax / LoC were there to capture it on film.

I've moved my two open back banjos down to my workshop so I don't disturb Cheryl, who's working from home, with my Dock Boggs' inspired old banjo tunes obsession.

Good to hear from you Rivers!  We are so lucky to have a video of Doc Boggs playing this tune.

Hi all,
Great footage of Jack Owens in a rare solo performance. I'd not seen this before.



All best,

Thanks so much for posting that, Lyndvs! Boy, is their time locked. Fred Cockerham just sounds perfect and Tommy wasn't too bad either.
