Gus Cannon and the Rise of Jug Band Music

By John Morthland, Contributor

Jug band music originated in Louisville, Kentucky, around 1905, but reached its fullest flowering in Memphis in the 1920s.

They Say All Music Guide

The third of three Document CDs has all of the Memphis Jug Band’s 1930 recordings. Despite the onset of the Depression, the influential band’s good-time style was unchanged and actually had improved a bit during the past couple of years. Will Shade was still its leader and alternated between guitar, harmonica, and vocals. The other original member was Ben Ramey on kazoo. During 1930, such players as mandolinist Charlie Burse, Hambone Lewis, and Jab Jones on jug, singer Charlie Nickerson, Vol Stevens on banjo-mandolin, and even guest vocalist/guitarist Memphis Minnie (on “Bumble Bee Blues” and “Meningitis Blues”) passed through the band. Among the more memorable selections of their highly enjoyable CD are “Everybody’s Talking About Sadie Green,” “Cocaine Habit Blues,” “Fourth Street Mess Around,” “Going Back to Memphis,” “Move that Thing,” and “He’s in the Jailhouse Now.” – Scott Yanow
