The story goes that Mississippi John Hurt was at the ripe young age of 35 when he traveled up from Mississippi to Memphis to lay down the first recordings of his career on the legendary Okeh label, a hop and a jump later in December of 1928 he made this recording in New York City, a lyrical reworking of “Make Me A Pallet on Your Floor”. You have to love the sound of this old recording; mellow and oaken, a bright finger picked guitar and a voice that will last for the ages.
