Hi, Marina -
This Sam Hinton Discography says Sam Hinton recorded "Hi Ro Jerum" in 1956 on a Decca album titled Family Tree of Folk Songs.
Sam's Folkways recordings are available on CD, and Bear Family Records has a wonderful CD of his 1947 Library of Congress Recordings; and there's a terrific Sam Hinton CD called Master of the Solo Diatonic Harmonica. Unfortunately, none of the Decca recordings have been reissued.
I suspect that Adam Miller may sing Sam Hinton's version. Click here to find a full recording by Adam. Maybe Adam will drop by and post Sam's version. I'll contact him.
