Description of Product

Novelty performer Billiken Johnson gets top billing for his train whistle and vocal effects on this pair of sides recorded in Dallas at the end of 1928, but Neal Roberts provides most of the music, fine Texas piano and vocals. This is Roberts' only record. "Frisco Blues" has a bit of wear that causes minor peak distortion in a few places, but apart from one small scratch and three tiny pits, this is a very clean record. Note that there is a lathe problem on "Wild Jack Blues," where the cutting stylus jumps off the surface of the wax for about an inch on one revolution. There is no groove for that inch, which causes a thump, but all copies of the record have the same problem.
