Hesitation Blues

(Charlie Poole, et. al.) – I am at a loss for whom to credit with the original presentation of this number, as it was performed and recorded widely on both sides of the color line early in the last century.  I met Thomas Bailey at the Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis in 2008, then playing guitar with the Freight Hoppers.  I was as green as Kermit the Frog wandering around the conference that year, but Thomas took pity on me and flipped me a copy of his “It’s Always August” CD and it is from his recording that our version of “Hesitation Blues” evolved.
