Will Wake up, Jacob (6) RE: Wake up, Jacob 23 May 98

Found this at the Smithsonian site. No lyrics, but good information.

"WAKE UP JACOB" Prince Albert Hunt's Texas Ramblers DALLAS, TX: JUNE 26, 1929.
Prince Albert Hunt, fiddle; Harmon Clem, guitar; unknown, second guitar. (alternate titles: Wild Horse; Wild Horse of Stoney Point)

Archie "Prince" Albert Hunt (d. 1931) was from the town of Terrell, Texas, just south of Dallas. His group the Texas Ramblers played a style of music that would later evolve into Western Swing. The group featured the interaction of guitar and fiddle. Hunt also played with his Terrell eighbors Oscar and Doc Harper. Hunt's love for the nightlife caught up with him and he was shot to death by a jealous husband outside a Dallas bar in March 1931. A television documentary was done on Hunt in the 1970s by Houston Public Television (referred to in Bill Malone, Country Music U.S.A. pg. 159).
