  • Mississippi John Hurt - Pay Day

    2:58

    This is a gentle song showing that John Hurt improved with age. Mississippi John Hurt was tracked down by blues scholar,Tom Hoskins in 1963, from an ancient 78 recording of Avalon Blues. (Hurt was born and grew up in Avalon, Mississippi.) Hoskins encouraged Hurt & helped him be recorded by the Library of Congress. This led to the revival of the careers of numerous old Delta Bluesmen in the folk era of the US. Mississippi John Hurt was always amazed and happy that people would still come AND pay to see an old man play and sing the simple blues. (see a wonderful bio link below. It's a short bio and well worth the time to read. Hurt was a man just like he sounds in his music...a delightful person.)

    An except from the definitive biography site for Mississippi John Hurt written by Bruce Eder:

    Mississippi John Hurt left behind a legacy unique in the annals of the blues, and not just in terms of music. A humble, hard-working man who never sought fame or fortune from his music, and who conducted his life in an honest and honorable manner, he also avoided the troubles that afflicted the lives of many of his more tragic fellow musicians. He was a pure musician, playing for himself and the smallest possible number of listeners, developing his guitar technique and singing style to please nobody but himself; and he suddenly found himself with a huge following, precisely because of his unique style.

    This is the last paragraph of a gentle history of a gentle man. You can hear his gentleness and contentment in his voice. Mississippi John Hurt. Check out the short, excellent bio:

    Pay Day as sung by Mississippi John Hurt
    Yeah, I did all I can do and I can't get along with you
    I'm gonna take you to your mama
    Pay day, pay day, pay day

    Well, the rabbit in a log, I ain't got no rabbit dog
    And I hate to see that rabbit get away
    Get away

    Baby, did all I can do and I can't get along with you
    I'm gonna take you to your mama
    Pay day

    Just about a week ago
    I'm gonna keep my skillet1 greasy if I can
    If I can, if I can
    (You know what happened to me)

    Well, the hounds is on my track and the knapsack on my back
    I'm gonna make it to my shanty
    'Fore day, 'fore day, 'fore day

    Baby, I did all I could do, an' I
    I'm gonna take you to your mama
    Pay day

    Well, and I ain't got no rabbit dog
    Lord, I hate to see that rabbit get away

    Mississippi John Hurt had two albums of very limited success in 1928. He was later rediscovered in the sixties and put out or took part in a number of albums and small concerts. I think he is the sound of grace and could listen to his sing and play all day.

  • Mississippi John Hurt - John Henry

    5:12

    Mississippi John Hurt - John Henry

    John Smith Hurt (March 8, 1893 – November 2, 1966), better known as Mississippi John Hurt, was an American country blues singer and guitarist.

    Raised in Avalon, Mississippi, Hurt taught himself to play the guitar around the age of nine. He worked as a sharecropper and began playing at dances and parties, singing to a melodious fingerpicked accompaniment. His first recordings, made for Okeh Records in 1928, were commercial failures, and he continued to work as a farmer.

    Dick Spottswood and Tom Hoskins, a blues enthusiast, located Hurt in 1963 and persuaded him to move to Washington, D.C. He was recorded by the Library of Congress in 1964. This helped further the American folk music revival, which led to the rediscovery of many other bluesmen of Hurt's era. Hurt performed on the university and coffeehouse concert circuit with other Delta blues musicians who were brought out of retirement. He also recorded several albums for Vanguard Records.

    Hurt returned to Mississippi, where he died, in Grenada, a year later.

    Material recorded by him has been re-released by many record labels. His songs have been recorded by Bob Dylan, Dave Van Ronk, Jerry Garcia, Beck, Doc Watson, John McCutcheon, Taj Mahal, Bruce Cockburn, David Johansen, Bill Morrissey, Gillian Welch, Josh Ritter, Chris Smither, Guthrie Thomas, Parsonsfield, and Rory Block.
