Dennis Binder - Hole In That Jug
Hole In That Jug

Songwriter: Dennis Binder
Publishing: Earwig Music Company, Inc.

Earwig Music CEO Michael Frank first heard of musician Dennis Binder, born in Rosedale, Mississippi in 1928, when Delmark Records, on their Pearl label, reissued Dennis's early 1950's United Records tracks on the album Long Man Blues. Dennis, a rhythm & blues pianist and singer, started recording and touring during the early days of electric blues and rock 'n roll.

The track "Must Be a Hole In That Jug" captures Dennis sounding like he popped out of a time capsule wailing his '50's style rhythm 'n blues. Like Sonny Boy Williamson #2 (Rice Miller), who did not share his bottle of liquor, Dennis lets us know that he was not at all pleased that someone took the last swallow of liquor out of his jug of whiskey.
