This week we've got songs about working for little compensation from Louis Jordan, The Swift Jewel Cowboys, John Brim and Desmond Dekker. We've got some early recordings from future stars Sylvia Vanderpool (of Mickey & Sylvia) and David Ruffin, blues from Lightnin' Hopkins (pictured) and Nashville country from Patsy Cline. With no fewer than three records with washboards, this show can't be beat, Howlin' Wolf says so.
