    Judge give me life this mornin', down on old Parchman's Farm. Judge give me life this mornin', down on old Parchman's Farm. I wouldn't hate it so bad, but I miss my wife and my home.

    Without slavery, there'd be no blues.

    Soooooooooo many bluesmen did time on 'the farm' during the 20's and 30's. As a result of their hard time, we get real authentic blues.

    I gotta say this is one of the best blues performances ever recorded. I can really hear pain all over this tune.

    I never realized SRV picked up so much of his vocal style.

    don't commit a crime in america for fuck's sake. especially if you're poor and live in the south. and are black.

    That washboard and Bukka's right hand are bangin' out some proper train rhythm blues, meanwhile his left hand is slippin' out some slide magic every now and then. Not to mention his words and voice. real blues.

    The people who recorded him asked him his name and he told them "Booker White" but they wrote it down wrong on the record label.
