One of the biggest blues woes is the lack of finance... to most of us, we try and hustle to pay the rent, but also the reality of dying is true; you have to pay to get buried, to have a plot of land to be buried in, along with taxes and the like.
This song was released by bluesman Louisiana Red in 1964, and has become one of his staples. I will be performing this song in the near future (stay tuned!)

This is a rare gem of a song; Chicago blues legends James Cotton, Paul Butterfield and Elvin Bishop sat down to play one of Cotton's classic tunes, in a stripped down late night blues.
The song is also known as "Down at Your Burial".
