I'm sure this recording is very rare. I hope it ends up in the Library of Congress one day. I tried to look it up, but I don't think they have it on the web site. http://id.loc.gov/authorities/names/n84143184.html

Lemon Jefferson's records generally sold well for Paramount. He's one of, if not the first guitar playing blueman to sell a lot of records. His recording career had a few years head start on the Great Depression as well, which is why his records aren't priced in the stratosphere like some of his other Paramount contemporaries.
