Skoodledum Doo

Seth Richards recorded a couple tracks under his real name in 1928, which would be his last recordings until he recorded as Skoodle Dum Doo and Sheffield in 1943. This track is where he got that moniker suggesting that it was a pretty solid seller. Richards attack this this track with great frenzy and frantic kazoo playing, but that frantic energy dies down and Richards settles into reciting Blind Willie McTell lyrics.

I know this is incredibly late, but I’ve actually got a different version of this song, sung by Papa Charlie Jackson. The version I have is from Good For What Ails You: Music of the Medicine Shows 1926-1937, and while it’s not mind-blowing, it makes an interesting experiment to compare the two versions.
