a note about this track

Blues Spotlight: J.D. Short - Is In Nobody's Hall of Fame, Indeed His Name Is Almost Forgotten Today, But He Was Blues Player Of Exceptional Quality.

First Recording Date Was In 1930 For Paramount Records Before Joining The Neckbones For The Next Thirty-Years; Passing Through The Band Were The Likes Of Big Joe Williams And Peatie Wheatshaw. Seminal Recordings In 1962 Would Be His Swan Song. J.D. Short Passed On A Few Months Later.
