Blogshares.com has set up a blog stock market that has some system of valuing stock based on incoming hits through some site. Anyway my stock is on the rise! As you can see by the charst, Honey is going up and up and up. Sadly I own zero shares of my own blog,making all these gains worth 0 fake dollars to me.
Today we are featuring another great "lost" blues player by the name of Jack Gowdlock. From my research it appears he recorded 4 sides for Victor in 1931, the first two were gospel sides that were not issued and the other two were Poor Jane Blues and Rollin' Dough Blues. Blind Nesbitt (I've only heard of this singer, if anyone has recordings by him let me know) apparently sang on the two unissued sides which seem like they would be amazing. Gowdlock was well known in his area (Union County, NC) as one of the best guitar players around and you can hear his very precise form of Piedmont Blues guitar on this track though his country influenced vocals dominate the mix.
