33 1/3 rpm 7" EP

Ragged but right four-song EP from Will Shade, formerly of the Memphis Jug Band. In addition to a hilariously foul-mouthed Dirty Dozens, on Wine-Headed Man Shade delivers an excellent improvised number that pokes fun at the visiting white boys, a tradition that is often executed but seldom commercially released. Fahey: “He had the most infectious smile I have ever seen on anyone.  He could have sold me the Brooklyn Bridge if he wanted to.”
