This looks great, thanks for the post. Unfortunately I've got the (official Guiness) worlds worst internet connection today, so the actual viewing will have to wait.............

I love what Steve James did with his arrangement of 'Blues in the Bottle'. I used to do have arrangement more akin to the original, I might dig that out again......

I enjoyed that.  Don't go around with another guy's wife; it could be bad for your health.

I had lived in Texas just a little before that film was made and seeing those people interviewed reminded me of people then.

So that's where Blues In The Bottle came from.  Before today I'd never heard a version older than the Holy Modal Rounders'.  Nice film.  Thanks for the link.

I enjoyed this too - thanks for posting it, beljum. I knew Blues In The Bottle from The Kitchen Syncopators CDs so good for me to track down the originator. And always good to find another white bluesman. I love it when the lines get blurry!
