Saturday Music Post - Richland Woman Blues

Mississippi John Hurt released "Richland Woman Blues," today's music post at The Faculty Lounge, on his 1963 album Folk Songs and Blues. I don't know whether he wrote it, or if it is traditional, but it is beautifully simple, especially with Hurt's gentle voice and his virtuoso cross-picking guitar. Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band covered it as "Richland Woman" in 1966 on See Reverse Side for Title, with Maria Muldaur's singing and Kweskin and Geoff Muldaur on guitar (it took two of them) in as perfect an arrangement as I have ever heard. The post is here.
