Comments:

This is an interesting version of Sail Away Ladies from Tennessee fiddler Fiddlin' Arthur Smith (not to be confused with Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith, who was also a fiddler).  He did not play it through very many times, but demonstrated some nice variations.  There is a nice bluesy lick in the A part the second time through.


This tune is a member of the following groups:

Sail Away Ladies, Sally Ann, Great Big Taters
