Track Desciption:

QUOTE FROM THE LYRICS: “I went to the St. James Infirmary. I saw my baby there. Stretched out on a long white table. So cold, so pale, and so fair”.

Roly Platt’s plaintive harmonica, Ben Grossman’s bone-like percussion, and Dennis Pendrith’s pounding bass drive this traditional blues like a runaway train.
