Sweet Alberta: Jackson Blue Boys (Charlie McCoy), mandolin transcription

Like Hidin’ on Me, another incredible tune from one of the Mississippi Sheiks configurations under the Jackson Blue Boys recorded December 1928 in New Orleans. Charlie McCoy is on mandolin/vocals, along with Walter Vinson on guitar/vocals and Bo Chatmon on lead vocal reworking “Corrine, Corrina” recorded by the three at a separate session in New Orleans the previous month. This tune (either as “Sweet Alberta”, “Alberta Alberta”, “Corrine Corrina”, or “Corrina Corrina”) is essential for any blues musician’s list of standards.
