Ain't got no home to steal away to

Download: HORACE SPROTT "Interview/ Steal Away Home to Jesus"

He was born on Feb. 2, 1890 and did time on a prison farm in Montgomery, AL.

I don't know anything else about him yet, but this album of interviews plus field holler/ work song type a capella stuff is riveting. Horace Sprott (talk about a name from 115 years ago!) apparently plays harp really well on the two other volumes of the series that feature him (3 &4).

This track was taken from the 1954 field recording Music From The South, Vol. 2 (1955 release), made by Frederic Ramsey Jr. It has never been reissued but Folkways will burn it onto a CD for you if you go here and don't forget to say "please" and "thank you."
