ruckus juice & chittlins
on the back of that last post i thought i might be in arrears if i didn't throw up some of the source material. "ruckus juice and chittlins" is probably the best (maybe the only) compilation series out there focusing just on original jug band material from the deep south of the 20' and 30's. this is the source mined by the likes of mother mcree's uptown jug champions, as well as by today's jug band revivalists, such as old crow medicine show and the carolina chocolate drops (old crow fans will recognize "tear it down" and "cocaine habit blues" on this compilation).
