Eddie "One String" Jones & Edward Hazelton - "One String Blues" - 1960


In 1960, Eddie Jones was in Los Angeles, playing his homemade "one string" for tips on skid row. He was hauled into a studio for a couple of brief sessions, and then he vanished into complete obscurity, never to be heard from again. All of this would only be a mildly intriguing bit of blues mythology if the music itself wasn't so insanely good. If you've never heard Eddie before, you're in for a treat. That this one remains out of print is a goddamn travesty. An awesome, weird, one-of-a-kind record.
