You try to sing like Muddy Waters, and play like Lightnin' sounds. But since I blowed on my harp you're feelin' mean and confused. It's got you chained to your earphones - you're just a white boy lost in the blues - Brownie McGhee, White Boy Lost in the Blues by Michael Franks performed by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee

Here's "Sugar Coated Love" with permission from Peter:

Thanks for that, Jeff and Peter. Great to hear this. Cecil B. sure was a unique player (and singer!). His Lucy Mae Blues and Love Blues on the George Mitchell Collection V1-45 are superb.

Dear Folks -

Cecil was quite unique in many ways. While attempts were made to get him to attend various concerts, et al, he just would not leave his place (in Plains, GA back then). And he had his phobia about photos, even though he'd allow you to take them(!) - I have some stunners of him back with my stuff, and Axel Kustner located him nearer his latter days and took some shots as well. When I met him, he was living with his wife in a small cabin, possibly a former slave quarter house, in Jimmy Carter's home town. The old saw about leading a horse to water applies here. Hope all enjoy his version of Lazy Lester's Excello hit... gives one a small idea of its spread!
