St. Louis Red Mike (who I think should of just kept his name St. Louis Red) whose real name was John McBailey, is a pretty typical St. Louis blues singer, slow and sweet, but dangerous and violent at the same time. He is backed on this recording by the great Blind John Davis on piano and an unknown most likely Willie Bee James on guitar. The song itself is about Red courting the Devil’s sister, marrying her and taking over hell, is something you don’t hear much of in blues music, even from the Devil’s Son-In-Law himself, Peetie Wheatstraw. Maybe Peetie wasn’t the ambitious type.
