Another favorite of ours, Alabama Bound is a Leadbelly classic with a driving groove and a rousing chorus. I think I learned this one listening to Arlo Guthrie (one of my all time musical heroes) but purloined the last verse from a recording by the late 1960’s San Francisco band, The Charlatans. The Charlatans have faded into memory, but one of their members, Dan Hicks, went on to much bigger things with the Hot Licks.
