 . . . A must-have. Thanks for the heads up.
So besides the Blake titles what are the new discoveries? I'm thinking the Paramount All-Stars test must be one . . . Are those cleaner versions of Tommy Johnson's tunes?
I got pretty excited for a moment when I read 'Worried Blues' by Lemon. Didn't recognize it at first. Then realized it must be what I know as 'Lemon's Worried Blues'. Darn.

I have a feeling that the Skip James "Mighty Good Leader" might be an alternate take. In 78 Quarterly Issue 6, under the rarest 78s section, there's a quote from Gayle Wardlow that two takes of that tune are known to exist.

The cover copy reads: "Two Newly Discovered Songs from 1932 by Blind Blake" and "Three Newly Discovered Songs by Blind Lemon Jefferson and others".  Since "Worried Blues" is the only Blind Lemon Jefferson song on the CD, it would seem that it must be one of the "Newly Discovered Songs".  Track 16 is listed as "Hometown Skiffle TEST!", where the "TEST!" (caps and exclamation point) would lead one to think that this is a new discovery.  Which leaves one song.  Chris may well be right about "Jesus Is A Mighty Good Leader", but you'd think that Skip James is a big enough name that a previously unissued performance by him would be mentioned on the calendar cover.  But...  There are two songs by Ben Curry listed.  Neither of them - "The Laughing Rag" and "Hot Dog" - is on Document's "Alabama Black Country Dance Bands", which contained Curry's extant recorded works when it came out 15 or so years ago, and neither song made it onto any of Document's "too Late, Too Late" volumes, nor onto "The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of".  So perhaps those are two of the five, which would seem to bump the "Hometown Skiffle" test from the list. 

At any rate, it all makes for some pleasant speculation.

Lemon's Worried Blues doesn't have any alt. takes listed in B&GR. So this must mean a "new" copy, e.g., better condition?

The reference to new Lemon material may mean the Paramount All Stars tracks where I believe Blind Blake is impersonating Lemon. See this thread:

I used the Papa Charlie Jackson section of the Home Town Skiffle as my ring tone for a bit last year, oh how I did get some funny looks when my phone went off in crowded areas.

At the risk of seeming a complete geezer Luddite, can someone explain to me how one gets a recorded piece of music to use as a ring tone? I have a cell phone, much to my surprise, and use it on occasion when I remember to turn it on or uncover it from the stack of mail that includes outrageous cell phone bills (Canada! not progressive on this front), but I have no clue as to how to add a ring tone. I am computer literate.  :P

it depends on the type really, there might be problems if its quite an old phone though most phones come with some sort of usb -> Phone cable and some software which lets you put music on, take photos off etc. And once you put music on there is (usually?) a way to set it as ringtone/text message sound.

Ah, this is probably the problem. My phone is pre-mp3 capable. Can do photos and video (I have lots of footage of the inside of my jacket pocket from bumping the phone) but not that. I thought it worked through the ring tones upload function somehow.

Hey as long as we're on the topic:
Can anyone recommend a really GOOD sounding phone that works with Verizon and pulls in signal in rural areas?

If you haven't already ignored the above video posting please ignore it retroactively. According to Snopes cell phones can't pop popcorn, though they can make the popcorn sterile (no...thats a joke...really).

Didn't really know what you were on about, O' Muck, so I clicked on the link only to get this message:

"Cette page n'existe pas."

So I'm still none the wiser, but then again ignorance is bliss...
