During the same session he cut 20-20 Blues and Devil Got My Woman (see there). Paramount gave him the choice: either a percentage on any record sold (if ever it was decided to release anything in the first place), or $40 cash. An easy choice one year into the Great Depression! One of the forgotten bluesmen rediscovered in '64 by John Fahey and Canned Heat's Henry Vestine.
Royalties for the Cream cover financed Skip James' hospital expenses ('67) and funeral ('69). Ida Cox's I'm So Glad (for Paramount in '29) was another song.
