Bumblebee Slim (aka: Amos Easton) was a highly prolific singer, songwriter and guitarist. He recorded over 150 songs for Paramount Records, Decca, Bluebird and Vocalion, accompanied frequently by such top notch musicians such as Big Bill Broonzy, Peetie Wheatstraw, Tampa Red, Memphis Minnie, and Washboard Sam.

This song exists in contrasts with a lot of Slim’s material, which was frequently lighter and jocular.
