I’ll put up something more official later this week, but my email address is changing to pkpatnaik at prewarblues.org, please update your address books and contact lists. I’m trying to leave my personal email a little more less crowded as well as have more options for organization with a pop3 mail client on my computer. I still love to hear from ya’ll though.

I generally avoid posting tracks from artists unknown, but today’s track is too good to deny. Recorded by Lawrence Gellert, an Tryon, NC resident by way of Budapest, in Georgia in 1929 the people on this track aren’t known, but they sure can play country blues! This track features some strong guitar playing and good lyrics though a lot of it is heavily obscured by a lot of surface noise. What does make it through the static is a classic country blues song and one that unfortunately not credited to the people who created it. The song also seems to fade out right at the end, though it appears the song is ending at the same time – that’s an very unfortunate mastering choice still.
