It was in tune when I bought it - Big Dave MacLean, in concert, while retuning his ancient slot head Gibson

I've searched Playlists & Requests (I'd like to request those Papa Egg Shell tracks), and can't find any of the artists or titles from Rare Country Blues Volume 4 listed there.  And the CD doesn't show up in the Recently Added section.

Hi David,

Yup, I scewed up - I think I must have added the CD to the 'Station ID" category or something.  In any case, give it a shot now.

Cheers,

I finally got time to try it out.  It's there now.  Papa Egg Shell sounds great.  Thanks.

Various Artists - Country Blues Collector's Item (1930-1941)
Various Artists - Chicago Blues Vol. 1 (1939-1951)
Various Artists - The Tommie Bradley - James Cole Groups 1928-32
Michael Jerome Browne - Michael Jerome Browne (selected tracks)


and a few notes from DJ:

Country Blues Collector's Items (1930 - 1941):  The complete recorded works of Tommy Griffin and One Arm Slim and the pre-war recordings of Frank Edwards.  That's Walter Vincson on guitar (when present) on the Tommy Griffin cuts.  Frank Edwards is playing guitar and rack-mounted harmonica with Washboard Sam on washboard.  One Arm Slim is accompanying himself on piano on "Howling Man Blues" - not bad if he really only had one arm.   Note the J. T. "Funny Papa" Smith influence on that one.
 
Chicago Blues Volume 1 (1939 - 1951):  The complete recorded works of Alfred Fields (with Bill Broonzy on guitar) and Tony Hollins, and Johnny Shines's Columbia and Chess recordings.

Umm...  I may have said "Washboard Sam on Harmonica" but I meant "Washboard Sam on washboard".   I really must learn to proofread.   :)

One Arm Slim is accompanying himself on piano on "Howling Man Blues" - not bad if he really only had one arm. 
When that title was first issued on LP in 70s (New Deal Blues - Mamlish S-3801) note writers Mike Stewart & Don Kent made this observation:

"One Arm Slim's piano is rather erratic due to the fact that he is probably using only one hand (as the only low notes appear to be coming from the string bass), though he is producing a lot of sound with it. Slim extends his phrases until he sees fit to end them, usually longer than four bars. Apparently, this does not bother his accompanist, Big Bill, who stays with Slim all the way through. Bill is playing in standard tuning, key of E, capoed up, and was very likely at the technical peak of his powers at this time."

Back then it was thought that BBB was the guitarist but over the years there seems to have been a change of opinion and said guitarist now appears in B&GR4 as "unknown".

The electric guitar certainly sounds like Big Bill.  And there are some shouts in the background of several songs that are unmistakably by Big Bill.  I suppose it could be George Barnes on guitar with Broonzy visiting in the studio and adding a bit of vocal encouragement.    Off the top of my head I can't think of anyone but Broonzy and Barnes who got that sound at that time.
