Here's a pair of hot sides from Pops himself, who celebrated his birthday today, July 4th. His actual birthday was on August 4th, but he didn't know it and it wasn't discovered until years after his death when his actual birth certificate surfaced. I like the idea of celebrating his birthday on the on the same day as the U.S.A.'s. Check out Johnny St. Cyr's guitar break on "Willie The Weeper."
