John Arthur Lee – Down at the Depot
Alabama bluesman, John Lee was born May 24, 1915, in Lowdnes County, AL. He learned his distinctive knife slide guitar style from his uncle, Ellie Lee, and spent the 1930s playing jukes and house parties before settling in Montgomery in 1945. Federal’s Ralph Bass auditioned him there, and impressed with what he heard, recorded five sides in 1951.
Other than “Down At The Depot” Lee recorded “Baby Please Don’t Go” “Alabama Boogie” “Baby Blues” and “Blind’s Blues”
He also recorded an album for Rounder Records in the 1970
