Default Saint James Infirmary

Here is my version of Saint James Infirmary - one of my favorite blues tunes with a lovely chord progression. The accompanying guitar is played on a circa 1910 Stetson branded Larson. The solo is played on a 1920 Martin 1-28. The singing is, as Leo Kottke famously said, like geese farts on a muggy day.

Hi Bill,
I enjoy your recordings.
Very nice guitar playing, and the vocals fit the song very well.
The Martin sounds fantastic.
Thanks for sharing.

Sounds great to me Bill. I have wanted to learn a version of this song for a long time but have yet to do it.

Nice rendition. Do you think the 102-year-old Martin is starting to open up?

I haven't thought about this song for years - what a great rendition, Bill!

Those two old guitars sound terrific as well.
