The three Memphis blues musicians featured on this album were all recorded on the memorable day of Friday, 22 December 1972, when we visited the homes of Bukka White (where White played his National steel-bodied guitar), Furry Lewis (where Laura Dukes performed some unusual material on the ukulele), and Memphis Piano Red (where former Jug Band member Dewey Corley was unexpectedly recorded on piano). All tracks were digitally remastered from the original tapes in 2013. Editorial assistance by Corey Wetherington, Penn State University.
