I found it at a local record shop here in Lex. Ky.
They had it tagged 50 bucks.
I traded a Eddie Shu 10" lp and Rabbit Mackay's Passing Through lp even.
I had paid 50 cents each so this record was 1 dollar out of pocket. Smile

Amazing, it just goes to show that after 84 years it's managed to survive. Recorded Chicago, Tuesday 19, April 1927.

Its first vinyl outing was on a 1973 Herwin LP The Rural Blues : SacredTradition : 1927-1930 from the 78 collection of Bernard Klatzko. The copy used for that sounds pretty clean too.

Just a little update on this....

I sold this copy to John Heneghan a couple of months ago in a 3 record sale. He later resold it on ebay and it was at last check, the highest amount on record for a Clayborn 78. Here's the link to the Popsike listing....

A little late to the party, but

a) awesome find
b) I love the Vocalion label
c) how tough 78's are still amazes me

Great find! I too have the Herwin LP BenCovington mentioned as well as a one on the 'Document' label (I think it was Document on LP -- it was Document, on CD at least) of just his music. Have there ever been other reissues? And did that represent his complete output?

Pacey, I think I'd read that he recorded either 29-30 songs in total, just as Blind Willie Johnson had.

Smolanski heres a link to the song...
