    the SECOND version was done by Mississippi John Hurt .. the first was Frank Hutchensen .. 1 year earlier. well, that the oldest known recording anyway. The legend goes back much earlier, and there might have been other recordings or performers of the song before him that were lost to the World ..

    HotStuff223.. its not surprising that The Clash did a song that sounds like Stack-A-Lee... they in fact covered Stack-A-Lee... (check out Wrong Em Boyo). Stack-O-Lee was covered by 100s of people ..including Dr. John and Nick Cave (isnt that Nick in your profile) is the only song that i collect "cover variations" of .. i have about 110 versions of it. The first known recording of the song was done in 1927 by Frank Hutchenson .. the second by Mississippi John Hurt in 1928.. Other people that have done it are Huey Lewis and the News, Taj Mahal, Grateful Dead and of course Lloyd Price. Some remakes are of Lloyds versions, most are remakes of the Frank H. version. And then there is Nick Cave .. did his very own special sadistic version.. fun song.

    Is it just me or does Stack-A-Lee sound an awful lot like Jimmy Jazz by The Clash?

    Got my answer. The versions of Right Place Wrong Time and Such A Night are from the album ALL BY HISSELF (Live at the Lonestar). Keep funky!

    Anybody knows where I can find those live versions of Right Place Wrong Time and Such A Night offered here on It says that's from The Very Best Of but I have the album and there are just the studio versions. It would be great if anybody could help me. :)
