Abner Jay / Koko Joe & The Job Hunters - I'm So Depressed / Depression

MISSISSIPPI RECORDS

  • £12.99


Absolutely essential 7" single featuring two powerful, raw and heart-breakingly soulful versions of one of Abner Jay's most well-known - and best loved - songs, 'I'm So Depressed.' 

The A-side is an rendition entitled 'Depression' performed with a full R&B band as Koko Joe & The Job Hunters, one of four known Abner Jay recordings produced by Lee Magid in the late-50's, and issued as singles on LMI Records. 

The B-side is an alternate take (with an extended ending) from Jay's 1968 self-produced debut album, Terrible Comedy Blues which showcased his unique one-man-band blues, performed using a banjo in his hands, a harmonica around his neck and a bass drum and hi-hat at his feet.
