Sugar Babe was the first piece I learned, when I was a little boy about 13 years old. Reason I know this so good, I got a whippin' about it. Come out of the cotton-patch to get some water and I was up at the house playin' the git-tar and my mother come in; whopped me cause I didn't come back - I was playin' the git-tar. Yeah, I got a whippin' bout Sugar Babe - I never will forgit that one - Mance Lipscomb, from his biography

hello friend,
"revolutionary" is right.
working at a large coffee place, they had a cd a couple of years ago with songs selected by bob dylan. this was one of them. i always thought it was the beatles every time i heard that intro!
pee wee has some cool tunes.

I recommend this Otis Rush Delmark CD live recording. I scored it for $8 in Frys (of all places) the other day. Revelation to say the least.

This is not from the 50's but the continuity is obvious if you like the Cobra recordings. Absolutely great live sound dive bar recording, for the era, on this record. Even the mistakes, clearly caused by the fact that the rest of the band are naturally scared shitless to take solos when Rush calls out to them, are interesting. This is my current favorite record so I just thought I'd pass it on.

hello friend,
i recently got vol. 2 of ace records "the modern downhome blues sessions", & it has been getting steady play time since. very good cd. fans of the more countryfied electric sound of the early 50's will really dig this disc. i also have vol. 1, which is also highly recommended. but i'd give this one a slight edge for overall track selection. (not as many alt. takes on this one)
plus ace does a great job with remastering.
