North Mississippi Allstars - Rollin 'n Tumblin

An excellent version of the traditional classic Rollin 'n Tumblin.
This is in my top 5 lp's of the year

Hambone Willie Newbern recorded "Roll and Tumble Blues" on March 14, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia for Okeh Records. It shares several elements of "Minglewood Blues", first recorded in 1928 by Gus Cannon's Jug Stompers. Newbern's "Roll and Tumble Blues" is a solo piece with his vocal and slide-guitar accompaniment.
