One day a man wearing a Western-style hat with a red bandanna around his neck walked into our store and announced that he was Jelly Roll Morton, the greatest stomp and blues piano player this side of New Orleans. Cassius Clay had nothing on Jelly Roll! - Lester Melrose, comparing Jelly roll Morton to a young (pre name change) Mohammed Ali

Yep, that's definitely Charlie McCoy on 'Stranger Blues'. Shows you how close I was listening. So this is a JSP mistake, not B&GR. Ignore posts.

I don't have them, but I suspect that the mistake is present in earlier versions of B&GR and was corrected in the 4th edition.  The Document issue of the complete Ishmon Bracey contains "Stranger Blues", listing Bracey on guitar.  The discographical info for that would have come from B&GR 3.

Ramblin' Thomas' 'Hard Dallas Blues #4' seems to have turned up after B&GR 4th ed. was published. Document have it on 'Too Late Vol.10', Catfish have it on their 2000 'Ramblin' Thomas - Hard Dallas' release (KATCD173, 'Penguin Guide To Rec Blues' states that this has been deleted) & JSP seem to have it on their Texas Masters box. Go this thread for some extra info

. . . & maybe this would be the best place for Bunker to post his findings as to the discovery of this tune.

Henry Johnson, of Henry Johnson And His Boys, is listed as playing cello, violin, and hurdy-gurdy.  To me, it sounds like he's mostly playing a one-string fiddle tuned pretty low.  Whatever that is on "Hawaiian Harmony Blues" and "Down Home Special", it sure ain't a hurdy-gurdy.

Looks like test pressings of Ma Rainey's 'Slow Driving Moan' (4709-2) & 'Gone Daddy Blues' (4691-1) (from 1927) have been sold on Ebay. All the details & pics of the 78 available here
