Clyde Maxwell, “Corrina”/”Wood-Chopping Holler”

I’ve been on a big Belton Sutherland fix lately, and seeing as I’ve already posted his complete recorded works, I reckoned I’d post a track by a different artist from the same recording session. Clyde Maxwell is, in fact, the owner of the porch on which the Belton Sutherland tracks where recorded, and he is a fine bluesman in his own right. Below, check out a video of Clyde Maxwell playing the blues-folk standard “Corrina” from the same night, and on the same guitar, as the legendary Belton Sutherland videos. Below that, be sure to check out Clyde Maxwell performing a wood-chopping holler. All videos recorded by Alan Lomax from the field trip that birthed the Land Where the Blues Began film. Enjoy!
