Subject: Book search:"StaggerLee/Black Hustlers"

Hi, can anyone help me? I am seeking a book related to recent recordings by Nick Cave. Subject described as "the folk poetry of Black Hustlers" and "a book on Negro American toasts" with a violent recitation of "Stagger Lee" by "a black hustler from New York called Big Stick".

This ribald version was set to new music by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. A version of the traditional song "Henry Lee" and the childrens song "King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki-Mi-O" were also recorded, and the lyrics may be derived from the same book. Thanks in advance for your advice. Kim Beissel, Melbourne, Australia

You're welcome, in advance.

(I've wanted to do that for a long time.)

Oh, all right, since you've patiently waited since 1996—

Most likely that would be:

The Life: The Lore and Folk Poetry of the Black Hustler by Dennis Wepman, Ronald B. Newman, Murray B. Binderman (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1976)

Other editions:
Los Angeles: Holloway House Pub. Co., [1993?]
