Kid Bailey – “Mississippi Bottom Blues” (mp3)

Although it’s almost a clich√© to say this about a blues musician from the American South, Kid Bailey was one of the most enigmatic musicians of the era. His recording career lasted exactly one day, and yielded only two songs. I’m proud to present one of those two songs, “Mississippi Bottom Blues.” The chorus was appropriated by Canned Heat for their song, “Going Up the Country.”
