4th St.

I came across various covers of the tune 4th Street Messaround on YouTube, and I realized I know two tunes about 4th St. The first one is that old Memphis Jug Band tune. They were a great band and were very well recorded. If you don’t know their material, I highly recommend it.  The Memphis Jug Band were active from the 20s right into the 50s. Their personnel changed quite a bit along the way but no matter, it’s pretty much all excellent.

The other 4th St tune I know of is Positively 4th Street by Bob Dylan. Here’s Lucinda Williams covering it…
