Art is da man.No art-ifice in him.

I'd like to add Bay Rum Blues "Give me a dime so I can buy some more." A lot of the white country blues has a humorous edge to it.
Narry an "Ooooh-wheee my baby done left me."

I'll second Lightnion' Hopkins... probably my favoritye as well. I had a chance to hear him and sit at the bar next to him on a memorable night at the Village Gate where he was one-third of a triple bill which alsol included The Modern Jazz Quartet and Sabicas, the highly respected Falmenco player. As unlikely a combination as one night at the Fat Black Pussy Cat in the Village where I did a set, along with Tiny Tim and Richie Havens.
