See See Rider, Janis Joplin (1963) Janis Joplin was 20 years old when she covered the traditional blues song. Ma Rainey was the first to record See See Rider Blues in 1924, but the music and lyrics date to the early 1900s at least. It’s my opinion that the name of the song is a misheard lyric / typo by the publisher, and that C.C. Rider is correct, that “C.C.” stands for “Chitlin’ Circuit” (or “Chitlin’ Café”).

Old Timey-Holler/Ditty, Leonard Emanuel, (1976) Rhino RecordsRecorded at Spivey’s Corner, North Carolina between 1975 and 1976.

Village of Love, Nathaniel Mayer & The Fabulous Twilights (1962)Village of Love was Nathaniel “Nate Dog” Mayer‘s first hit, recorded when he was 18. After his six year stint with Fortune Records, his whereabouts were often unknown as he would disappear into the East Detroit ghettos, sometimes for years. Apparently he’d had a rough time, too – in 2009 he recorded The Puddle.
