Garland Jeffrays does a loving rendition of Skip James Washington DC Hospital Blues. The song was a true story written by Skip James about his stay in the hospital back in the early 60s. James had become the legendary forgotton bluesman. Perhaps even a phantom in the mists of time. Yet, James amazingly shows up at the Newport Jazz festival in 1964 and is rediscovered. James eventually died of Cancer in 1969.
