A classic! Abner Jay was a one man band with a style completely onto himself. His music harkens back to the sounds of the 1800's (pre blues) but somehow sounds wholly modern at the same time. Abner plays drums with his feet, electric banjo and harmonica and sings with one of the richest baritone voices you'll ever hear, all at the same time.
This LP features the creme de la creme of Abners' self released music from the 60's and 70's - hits like 'I'm so depressed', 'Vietnam', 'St. James Infirmary, and 'The Reason Young People do drugs.' One of Mississippi Records absolute best titles hands down.
'Tip on' cover and comes with 4 inserts - two informative pamphlets penned by Abner, Abner's life story and a transcription of his jokes and banter. Improved sound quality and cover clarity too! - Mississippi
