More Blues from Lockdown
It isn't just Matt and Dom who've got the blues during lockdown. It's even got to Doctor G, who's recorded a slice of vintage Americana. You can listen to it here. The song is 'No More Cane On The Brazos' originally sung by the convicts sentenced to life with hard labour in the sugar-cane fields on the Rio Brazos in the early Twentieth Century. It's been covered widely -- from the Limeliters to Lonnie Donnegan, The Band to Ian Gillan. Henry did it in a band called Hippies With Mortgages, somewhat later in the Twentieth Century. WARNING - may contain accordion.
