Today's track by one of my favorite guitar players, Furry Lewis. Lewis has one of the best guitar sounds in blues, it's very clean and precise, a method that draws from the blues as much as ragtime and that would define the Memphis blues scene. This track his Lewis' take on the Stagger Lee legend, and it is my favorite (even over Mississippi John Hurts!) because of the amazing guitar playing and the balance that he brings to the ballad and also that it is not overly violent as a lot of the versions are.

Any ideas? -toph10/22/2004 02:54:41 PM|||peter patnaik|||i checked the links on a different computer today and i was able to download all the files, maybe it was a temporary thing? Also I think i'm going to move all my mp3s to a single normal server so that i don't have to rely on earthlink's free web hosting anymore. But all files should be up as of Friday afternoon.10/22/2004 04:50:57 PM|||Anonymous|||I've been trying since yesterday and I'm still getting "server busy" errors.
