Thanks to the couple of people who sent me some of the 1960s Black Ace recordings. These were recorded by Arhoolie in 1960 during the start of the blues/folk revival and this song in particular shows that Black Ace was still incredible slide guitar player some 40 years after he first recorded. It’s a shame he wasn’t able to support himself recording during those in-between years – or even record more during his first and last sessions he was certainly capable of recording wonderful music.

There’s brief vintage film of Black Ace in a 1940 film “Blood of Jesus”.

I bought a DVD from e-bay recently for next to nothing. An all black and very low budget film , towards the end there’s a scene of a jazz/blues band playing on the back of the truck and playing a National on his lap is Black Ace.

The seeve notes to his Arhoolie album referred to the film and I’d been wanting to see it for years.
