Cohn is aware of no other copy of the record anywhere. Harris who sang accompaniment with Johnson on some of his recordings for Columbia Records between and Bertha Lee met Charlie Patton in and remained his wife until his death in Patton accompanied her on guitar on these records.
William Smith and his wife recorded four songs for Paramount in while Eddie Head cut the same number for Columbia in Posted by Jeff under Playlists 1 Comment. Another mx show today, this one leaning heavily on some great pre-war blues cuts and some excellent down-home blues sides from the post-war era. In addition we twin spin rare sides by Mance Lipscomb, a pair by Big Joe Turner a fine set of piano blues plus plenty of other interesting sides.
Every year around this time Tefteller, through his Blues Images imprint, publishes his Classic Blues Artwork Calendar with a companion CD that matches the artwork with the songs. The record was found last year at a flea market in North Carolina.
Cut in the heart of the depression, the record obviously sold poorly explaining its extreme rarity. His first recording session was in in Atlanta for Columbia.
Four titles were recorded but only two were issued. Five years later he had his second and final session in New York City for Decca. Ten songs were recorded in one day, but only four made it onto shellac. Between his two sessions, Nesbit also recorded two duets with Jack Gowdlock for Victor in Those were also held back.
Tefteller reached out to the community of blues record collectors for a copy but none was to be found. This copy is a much superior copy to the one previously issued and comes from an old store stock copy in Dallas. In addition, several years ago Tefteller uncovered a huge cache of Paramount promotional material. Tefteller bought a huge cache of this artwork from a pair of journalists who rescued them from the rubbish heap some twenty years previously and has been reprinting the artwork in his annual calendars.
Every year Tefteller manages to top himself with these calendars and the edition is already one to get excited about. Will play it at Nevins house next week in NJ.

Included inside the cover sleeve was a large, page booklet explaining the history of the songs, as well as a large disclaimer presenting the recorded material as a scholarly document which, along with the generic white sleeve and anonymous performers, were evidently measures taken against possible charges of obscenity. Some of the performers have been ostensibly identified by researchers. The album was later reissued with a cover as Raglan R Born in Texas, pianist Ezell played in the jukes around Shreveport before moving to Detroit and Chicago.
