Anyone know of a version of (New) Stranger Blues that predates Tampa Red's on Document Record's Vol 4 (1930-31)?
Much obliged,
~Andrew

"Lady Plays the Blues" * suggested Memphis Minnie might have but that was off the cuff.

* presented is Marion Miller Stroud FM Fri 8pm, Sun 1pm & Tues 12am (all GMT)

Thanks for the Memphis Minnie lead. Turns out, though, that that's a different song altogether and probably was recorded after Tampa Red's with Georgia Tom.

I'm wondering because Jesse Fuller credits the song to Red (under the name Hudson Whittaker). I would have expected to be able to trace the "folk processing" of it, but so far all roads lead to Tampa.

Cheers,
~Andrew
