New Rubbin' On That Darned Old Thing

Speaking of Hokum, here’s a good ol’ naughty number for you—though it’s really about getting clean, not dirty, if you take it at face value!  Oscar’s Chicago Swingers were led by “Lovin’ Sam” Thread, and Sam played with some cats in his time—his very first sessions were accompanied by Tampa Red and Cow Cow Davenport, two of the giants of the field.  In an interesting footnote to history, the Grateful Dead adapted this tune as their song The Rub.  Sam Thread was originally from New Orleans, though he ended his days in Los Angeles, California, where had roles in a few Hollywood TV productions in the 1970s.
