Napoleon Strickland Fife & Drum Band


No originals found for this artist.


  • Cover of DIS TRAIN in 1970 - fife & drum version as My Babe; then there's Jessie Mae Hemphill, granddaughter of Sid Hemphill, and her album She-Wolf where she cut a song she learned from her grandfather: My Lord Do Just What He Say, all in the fife & drum style of her North Mississippi region; Napoleon Strickland and Otha Turner, fife & drum rolemodels, cut their version after Little Walter's hit as My Babe; Sid Hemphill didn't record My Lord Do Just What He Say, we have to rely on his grandchild
