Ashes To Ashes
Posted in 1920s,1930s,Honey,Piedmont Blues on 09.05.06

So Which one of the lovely Honey followers bought me this? I really wonder what the reserve price is, because the package isn’t worth much more over 400 maybe 500 dollars and the person thinks he’s going to get full ebay price (around 8 dollars) for each disc, especially for a random allotment of discs.
I haven’t really posted Blind Boy Fuller since 2004, which is shocking because he might be the blues artist I listen to the most. This track is one of his earlier numbers recorded in 1937 and features the wonderful Bull City Red on washboard and Dipper Boy Council (what a name) on guitar. The song is basically a riff on Southern Can Is Mine by Blind Willie McTell, but I prefer Fuller’s take on the track.

I was wondering if you could post “Southern Can is Mine”? I have only heard the White Stripes’ cover, and I feel like that is a great failing on my part. If you could help remedy this sad situation, I’d greatly appreciate it.

Why do you say it’s a riff on Southern Can? It’s just the canonical ragtime guitar progression, which in recording terms only, pretty much goes back to West Coast Blues by Blind Blake. However there are thousands of tracks with this progression : it’s as ubiquitous as the twelve bar blues.

i was refering to the lyrical tone and phrasing of fuller’s track, rather than the guitar progression.

By L. on 09.06.06 5:23 pm

Ah OK, it is similar, but it does sound like a lot of other Fuller tracks.

Mind you Southern Can is one of my all time favourite tracks – I often find myself singing it for some reason. As I recall I first came across it in a boxed set of LPs called something like “The Rural Blues”. The box was red. I still have it of course.

Good picks, in any case. :-)
