Little Hat Jones - Bye Bye Baby Blues
Bye Bye Baby Blues Tab
Dennis (Little Hat) Jones, a Texas bluesman considered a notable of Naples, Texas. He record ten sides of his own and made nine more accompanying the very idiosyncratic and hard to follow Texas Alexander. Bye Bye Baby Blues is a very sweet song that also appears on the Ghost World soundtrack.

Crikey, mp34u is a bit of a find. Y2Karl puts more distance between himself and the pack in my favourite-chap-on-the-internet stakes.

From the same site: Karen Dalton

I believe I linked to it first as part of my 78 RPM jukebox-o-rama. at least in a sense, since it seems to me to be a disguised mirror of Public Domain 4 U,as the playlists are the same.

Man, though, it does have the goodies. Long Cleve Reed and Little Harvey Hull - "(Original) Stack O'Lee Blues", the grand daddy of all Stack O'Lees, for example, is a treasure, sounding as archaic and revenant as anything Richard 'Rabbit' Brown ever cut. It's like songster heaven over there. And, then speaking of Stack O'Lees, they also have Mississippi John Hurt's 1928 recording of it along with his Frankie and Louis Collins from the same year. It's songster heaven and a whole lot more....

Hmm, or mabe not on the mirror theory. Now Public Domain 4 U appears to provide links to mp34U as well as a number of other sites. It's funny, though--they often seem to originally come from somewhere else, oft times the Internet Archive. That Katy Cruel began on the Light In The Attic webpage for the reissue of the Karen dalton album from which it came.

By the way, another lovely example of songster styling is Sam Collins - Lonesome Road Blues. There is one of the most plaintive voices you will ever hear.
