Jesse Fuller : San Francisco Bay Blues

I knew this song from Jorma Kaukonen’s fine live album The Bottom Line, NYC but hadn’t heard about its history or the man behind it, until reading about him in Dave Van Ronk’s The Mayor Of MacDougal Street earlier today. It shows his self-built (and invented) fotdella (the boy standing in front of him,with which he’s playing the bass). Truly an original.
