Molly Man
Posted in Honey on 06.20.05

After many false starts Volume One of the Honey, Where You Been So Long mix tape series is available for download. A HUGE thanks should be extended to Chris Day whose tireless hours with EAC produced a good sounding copy of the mix from a poorly produced cd.

Today’s track is from Rev. Moses Mason whose rendition of John The Baptist is one of the highlights of the Anthology Of Folk Music. This track, Molly Man, features Moses at his best, very spirited and back by a sporadic banjo plucking. This track is one of the few secular tracks he recorded under the awkward name of “Red Hot Ole Mose.” This track reminds me a lot of Washington Phillips though with a little Gary Davis or Ed Bell vocally.
