Posted in Honey on 04.01.08

Okay here is the list as of 3/29. the years are marked where noted – i need help with dates (It’s hard on some discs to determine when the actual recording took place, those i’ve marked with the release date of the disc and a ?) and of course more songs. Big thanks to everyone who has contributed so far. No order should be implied by this list. Thanks!

So far I think Stuff Smith’s is my favorite. The Doors’ take on the song might be as bad and luckily as short as Elvis’ aborted Stagolee take.

Django record a version after the Hot Club Days – it is available on the CD “Django in Rome” and probably lots of other places.

The Pine Hill Haints have a version on their latest album, Ghost Dance–not sure how contemporary you’re going, but I thought I’d throw it out there.
