    Thanks. I enjoyed that. Canned Heat based this song on "Bull Doze Blues" by Henry Thomas (1928). Canned Heat's flute replaced the quills, African-American panpipes. No mandolin on Thomas's version I'm afraid.

    If the links don't work, search "Bull Doze Blues/Henry Thomas" on You Tube.

    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."
