Jaybird Coleman – “Mistreatin’ Mama”

Mistreatin’ Mama” has been covered by blues giants like Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, and Leadbelly, to name a few. Jaybird Coleman’s vintage take, preserved in all its monophonic glory, sounds as inspired and raw today as it did the day he recorded it in 1927. Remastered from the original 78 RPM vinyl, here’s Coleman, solo, alternating between harmonica and voice to bring the whole message home.
