Does anyone know of a transcription or youtube recording or other option to learn this tune? I heard it years ago and always wanted to learn it but I don't remember enough of it to just play it.
There was an old post referencing this (but I can't post the link) -- it seems to be a tune on a record called Lookout Blues by James Bryan. But even if I could play a record, I can't find any copies of it for sale.
So nobody knows of any _available_ copies of the tune then? All I can find is reference to the original LP, which is not available. There is nothing on youtube and no CD that I can find.
I literally don't even have a recording of the tune. As far as I can tell, nobody else does either. (There is supposedly a copy in a library at the Univ of WI, but they won't send it through interlibrary loan)
The Rounder Records website doesn't even think it exists.
Of course not. I see a couple copies of the James Bryan (no "t") LP for sale at discogs, and there's a transcription in Stacy Philips book of Bill Monroe fiddle tunes. Might want to watch for a more convenient copy at discogs or ebay. Rounder was sold to Concord Music Group, and I'm not surprised if they don't have much historical memory. To them it doesn't exist, at least as far as being available for sale.
Disclaimer: I know nothing about the seller in my last post. Stacy's website is still up, and lists the book, but is not taking orders at this time. I don't know how legitimate or authorized that other seller is, or where they're located, or how reliable they might be.
