Friends of the Fullertons:
Slim's Got the Blues
Two Fullertonistas make up two thirds of the acoustic blues jug revival trio Slim's Got the Blues: Charlie "Catfish" Bernstein on strings and Waterford Slim on blues harp. The irreplaceable Mark "Big Daddy" Fuller rounds out the sound on washtub bass and percussion.
For want of anything constructive to do, the three of us have teamed up to fill their copious spare time with some socially insignificant caterwauling in the American blues tradition: folk blues, Delta Blues, zydeco, country blues, city blues, and a healthy dose of "Neon" Leon Fullerton blues.

"Stranger Blues" - Traditional
A cold snap!
The most popular of Fullerton's many tent revival meeting tunes.
Popularized by Jimmy Reed, "Big Boss Man" continues to be a bar room favorite.
Johnson was a real flirt, wasn't he?
Leon Fullerton, our spiritual advisor, claims that "Tell Ol' Bill" was originally a feminist (or at least a female) rejoinder to the staggering volume of Stagger Lee songs (an entire genre unto itself), this time sung from the point of view of the widow of Billy Lyons, the man "Stagger" Lee Shelton famously murdered. We consider this as likely as anything else Fullerton ever said.
