We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I stumbled upon that video while I was listening to Dock Boggs & Charley Patton recently. Youtube is useful that way.
Interesting how similar country blues, spirituals and hillbilly music were 90+ years ago. Almost impossible to categorize and equally difficult to ID the race of the performer. Black 'blues' and white 'country' & 'folk' music didn't drift apart much until the 30s-50s.
It seems to me that the blues and country music does not need a good voice, a good musician or even good music. The story is what we listen to and often the singer plays the music somewhat inartfully and the music itself is kinda the same backbeat in every blues or country song. This schtick of droning a song as music against a background of inartfully produced same old tune seems to be it's appeal. A few beers help a lot in the enjoyment.
