If you have some extra money laying around in a shoebox somewhere, you might want to check out this highly dubious auction for Robert Johnson’s guitar. In more worthwhile news, Paramount GIG is raising money for a Paramount Records Walk-Of-Fame as well as other preservation works of blues culture in Grafton, WI.

Jaybird Coleman was born in Alabama as Burl C. Coleman, Jaybird was a nickname he would pick up in the military. He was a popular harmonica player and blues singer who toured around Alabama through out the 1920s, both solo and as part of various jug bands. He made his first recordings in 1927, and would only record one other time in 1930 as part of the Birmingham Jug Band. This track is a solo number from 1927 and is quite good and so much better than almost all of the harmonica/vox songs that from the pre-war and post-war eras.
