JIMMY POTTS ~ Fixin' to Die

Wonderful surprise to see Jim on Youtube - see how Life brightens when you nail corfu blues to your masthead?

The blurb:
"Jim Potts performs Fixin' to Die, a classic Delta blues of Bukka (Booker) White, later recorded by Bob Dylan on his first album.<p>
This song, and others like "Parchman Farm Blues", reflect Bukka's experience of serving time in Parchman Farm, Mississippi State Penitentiary.

The photograph of its entrance gate dominates this minimalistic video."

Ever since my appelation-controlled brother invited me down to the Cote de Nuits to strum guitar, he and I have kept up a snobby running joke about Chateau Fixin Todie.
