"The Leads All Gone" performed by the Hokum Scorchers

In 1990, the Hokum Scorchers performed a song called, "The Leads All Gone". It was originally done by Bo Carter (a.k.a. Bo Chatmon) in 1931 as "My Pencil Won't Write No More" and later it was recorded in 1980 by his brother Sam Chatmon on Flying Fish Records as "Pencil Lead Blues".
Lou Reimuller is singing and playing the National guitar and kazoo and I am singing, playing washboard and kazoo.

Happy New Year- A Spring Song!

I hear birds chirping out there, so I'm posting this animation
from 1931 called Mendelssohn's Spring Song by Cy Young.
I have never been so anxious for spring to come as I am right now.
Happy 2014!
