A FEW OF THE ITEMS WE WANT...

BLIND BOY GRUNT Dick Farina & Eric Von Schmidt (Very rare 1963 UK only 17-track mono LP recorded at Dobell's Jazz Record Shop in London on 14th & 15th January that year. This record has since become legendary for the involvement of 'Blind Boy Grunt' on four of the tracks - Glory Glory, Overseas Stomp, Xmas Island & Cocaine. The album was a release by Dick Fariña with Eric Von Schmidt & Ethan Signer but 'Blind Boy' performed backing vocals & harmonica on those four tracks. A relative unknown at the time, on his first visit to the UK, he was even listed on the label copy sheets for the sessions as Bob Diglan. This copy is in pristine near mint condition, both sleeve & vinyl - As good as it gets! F-LEUT/7)
See 'More Info' ...

Tracklisting: This was an impromptu recording made in London on January 14 and 15, 1963 using a single microphone. Joining Fariña and von Schmidt were Ethan Signer (of the Charles River Valley Boys) on fiddle, mandolin, and guitar, and occasionally Blind Boy Grunt. Blind Boy Grunt was of course the pseudonym of Bob Dylan, whose Columbia contract prevented his real name from appearing on the album. Tracklisting :- Side One: 1.) JOHNNY CUCKOO (4:27) adaption of a children's game song learned from Bessie Jones, a negro woman from St. Simon's Island, Georgia 2.) JUMPING JUDY (3:55) an ax song, sometimes called "Drive it On," from the unaccompanied singing of convicts, Cummins State Farm, Arkansas, 1934. Played in an open G-tuning. 3.) GLORY, GLORY (2:34) traditional negro hymn, the tune relating closely to the Southern white hymn, "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" 4.) OLD JOE'S DULCIMER (2:55) a medley of dance tunes including "Old Joe Clark," "Swing and Turn," "Darlin' Corey," etc. 5.) WOBBLE BIRD (2:44) a variation on "The Cuckoo," in 3/4 time. 6.) WILDWOOD FLOWER (1:56) instrumental on the well known Carter song. 7.) OVERSEAS STOMP (2:43) in the spirit of the 1927 Memphis Jug Band. Side Two: 1.) LONZO N'HOWARD (3:30) learned from Tom Shoemaker of Harlan, Kentucky, who heard it there from a mountain fiddler called Blind Jim. This is probably its first recording. 2.) YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL (3:00) a tune based on Furry Lewis' "Dry Land Blues," with additional verses. 3.) XMAS ISLAND (3:18) a twelve-bar written by Fariña. 4.) STICK WITH ME BABY (3:32) played in an open G-tuning, adapted from the 1928 Lewis, "I Will Turn Your Money Green." 5.) RIDDLE SONG (1:10) traditional, with new answers to fit the old questions. 6.) COCAINE (4:03) learned from Rev. Gary Davis at Indian Neck, 1960. 7.) LONDON WALTZ (3:10) a blues in 3/4 time, music by Fariña, words spontaneous.
