Frank Hutchison singing The Chevrolet Six

West Virginia-bord Frank Hutchison was one of the most distinctive guitar stylists in early country music. Hutchison came from the coal mining country of Logan County, site of the Battle of Blair Mountain. His 32 known recorded sides represent a diverse repertoire of blues, rags, old-time country playing, and and old-time country. They were collected on two CDs on the Document label, which are now sadly out of print. They are available on a JSP box called Worried Blues.

This tune, an ode to the car of choice for prohibition-era bootleggers, was recorded in New York City in the summer of 1929.
