Oh, Red!

Red Nelson- In Chronological Order (1935-1947)

"b. 31 August 1907; Sumner, (Tallahatchie, Co) MS
Nelson Wilborn, better known as Red Nelson, or Dirty Red, was born in Sumner, Mississippi, in 1907. A fine, capable vocalist, he moved to Chicago in the early 1930s and was a prominent recording artist from 1935 to 1947. His recordings with pianist Clarence Lofton, especially ‘‘Streamline Train’’ and ‘‘Crying Mother Blues,’’ are probably his best work. In the 1960s he performed locally with the MuddyWaters Band".

Looks like a good 'un. Thanks. Curious to hear what he did besides the famous "Mother Fuyer."
