Just to say thanks for finding this, and doesn't it sound great?
Excellent find! I can see why Bob lifted the melody - it's a nice little gem of a record. Thanks for posting!
Wow, Incredible find! Absolutely amazing!
Some of you may be aware of this, but if you're not, it's a treat. Good old "Highway 61" comes from Sunnyland Slim & Friends, a song called "Highway 61"! Especially "Alternate take 2." I have it on The Cobra and J.O.B. Recordings, 1949-56. Recorded in 1956. The guitar's rumbling repetitive background, it's clearly there.
Another version of "Uncle John's Bongos" was recorded by Johnnie & Jack on Decca. Don't know which one was the first. Anyway, thanks!
