Oh yeah. There he is, Mr. RL Burnside
, in the year of nineteen and seventy eight, Independence, Mississippi, porch fulla kids, singin' about when his first wife left him
, million-dollar smile on his face. And there he is again, with his guitar and amp, out by the barb wire fence, a poor boy a long way from home
. These two little gems just added to the Alan Lomax Archive YouTube channel
, where you'll also find some wonderful newly-uploaded clips (filmed in 1983) from fretless banjo plucker Tommy Jarrell
, the toast of Toast, North Carolina.
