Don Howland-Judge
This is a cover of Furry Lewis’s “Good Morning Judge/Judge Harsh Blues” which can be found on Howland’s criminally ignored solo album The Land Beyond the Mountains (2002, Birdman). It’s an amazing album, to me it’s a modern blues classic. It’s not some reconstituted wang-dang doodle bullshit. Informed by a hundred years of country blues, it’s ominous and funny and weird, like nothing I’ve ever heard. Howland was also in the Gibson Brothers. His current band is The Bassholes, where a faster version of this song can be found on their album Blue Roots   (To listen please click on “09 Judge” below)
