Kansas City Strummers were an unknown string band, with a great sense of rhythm and a wonderful vocalist who weaves and slurs his way through this song. I like this song a bunch because it really stands out from the the countless string bands that dotted the Midwest like railroad spikes who avoid numbers like this.
