Subject: RE: Pretty Polly?
E. C. Ball's fine (1941?) version with guitar is, I believe, featured on Library of Congress records that are commercially available. E.C. said he used his guitar to imitate a banjo version he'd heard (possibly B.F. Shelton's or John Hammond's), and both vocal and instrumental are classic and very dark and brooding. Bob
