[Not to be confused with the English actor John Hurt, from "Alien" and other films. This is the American John Hurt, the wizard of the blues. This is more than a "spoonful" of great stuff here.]
Thankyou, I had thought they were the same person.
The actor is "Derbyshire" John Hurt. He's GOT the blues, but he doesn't play them. (He IS a white man, after all. LOL) As for this song by his Mississippi namesake, it's what the group The Loving Spoonful named themselves after.
