Thread Name: Help: St. James Infirmary - by Rolling Stones?
Subject: RE: St. James infirmary
Cisco Houston recorded it for Folkways in the 1950s, after he set out on his own. Cisco had such a beautifuuly rich voice; it's a shame he played second banana all those years as Woody Guthrie's sidekick. It wasn't until Woody was hospitalized that Cisco came into his own, and it's even more of a shame that he died of cancer just a few years later.
