Blues Run The Game [Demo]

Just what the world needed: another version of Blues Run The Game.

Another song (like Here Come The Blues) by Jackson C. Frank, recorded on his eponymous album of 1965, produced by Paul Simon and with 2nd guitar on one track (Yellow Walls) by Al Stewart. The entire album (along with just about everything else he recorded including demos) is included on a CD called Blues Run The Game, released by Sanctuary Records around 2003.

Frank actually released another version about the same time as a single, which I don’t particularly recommend except as a curiosity. There are some pretty good versions of the song around, though: Bert Jansch did it rather nicely. John Renbourn also did a very energetic version: I wanted to do something a little closer to the original, though my guitar part seems to have wandered off in very different directions.
