  2. Mr. Completely Says:

    This is the “expanded” version of this mix. It’s not all songs Jerry sang, many of them were sung by others in his various bands: Bobby, Merl, Brent, or Phil.

    In some cases it’s the original version of the song. For others it’s the version I think Jerry’s version was based on. For others it’s just the version I like the best.

    One thing that’s fun to note is how badass a lot of the super-old-school guys were in terms of virtuosity. Oscar Aleman, Rev. Gary Davis, John Hurt – these cats could flat play.

    I make no pretense of completism here. The most glaring hole is definitely the early blues. There’s a little here, a sampling, and a lot more in Albert Walker’s share, in that Newport mix. Specifically there are no Pigpen tunes in here; that’s going to be a future project of mine.

    Also there are some songs Jerry liked that I don’t, or that I don’t like the original version of…so…here are 60 I think are cool. If you’re curious about anything that’s not on here, ask.

    Jerry had great and very eclectic taste in music. I’ve collected about twice the number of songs seen here over the course of the last 20 years, weeded them out, upgraded them etc – it’s been a really run project and will continue to be for a little while. Glad to share it with you all.
