Note: Alan Lomax: "derived: Sonny Boy Williamson." Shirley Collins: "good sound." This artist was misidentified by Lomax as "Cecil Augusta" in his notes; subsequent releases of his two recordings have perpetuated the error.
About the session: Two blues from the mysterious Cecil Augusta, about whom nothing is known, and a set of performances by the Memphis Jug Band, featuring the founder, Will Shade, and Charlie Burse, a member since 1928.
