Thread Name: Lyr Req: Talking Guitar Blues
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Talking guitar blues????
Cisco Houston recorded Talking Guitar Blues for Vanguard in 1961, a few weeks before he died of stomach cancer. Vanguard released it on I Ain't Got No Home, a posthumous LP of his last sessions. The only attribution of authorship is "Additional words by Cisco Houston." There is no indication of who wrote the original words to which Cisco added his own.
