Sleepy John Estes- guitar , vocals
Hammie Nixon- Harmonica (blues harp)

Sleepy John got his nickname from a condition called Narcolepsy or possibly a blood pressure disorder. No one seems to know for sure what condition it was. But it doesnt matter. He was later found ( "re-discovered") in the 1960s and he toured and played festivals along with Mississippi John Hurt and Bukka White and other bluesmen who seemed long forgotten. He died in 1977 of a stroke, before a planned European tour ,in his humble home in Brownsville, TN
This song was famously covered by Muddy Waters as Trouble No More.
Thank you for listening.
