Don't ask me what I mean.
Mercy Dee, "Fall Guy":https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pvwww8f5sCk
Julius Lester, "Stagolee." Kind of a tourist or a folkie. I like "Pine Bluff Freight Train Blues." Reminds me of a Quiet, Please episode.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RQUJ26HOBo
Baby Boy Warren, "Baby Boy Blues"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35hJM2taXRk
Josh White's embellished "Jelly, Jelly," sounding like some trashy Beacon novel from the late 50s. Another folkie, but most record store clerks don't seem to think so, and he often played in the blues idiom. There's a good side-length version he did of "John Henry."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qrby5o_WO8

feel like stagolee/stagger lee/stack-a-lee must be the archetypal novelistic blues number?
