The Bois-Brulé Jig - Another Recording

Recently, Brian began digitizing another great tape from his aunt Phyllis.  The recording quality on this cassette is excellent, you feel like you are in the same room with Erskine as he's playing.  On this tape is another outstanding version of the Bois-Brulé Jig that we posted a few weeks ago.

Hear the Bois-Brulé Jig

His playing on this take is really crisp and clear and all the notes stand out really well.  Notice something unusual here: Erskine is not clogging his feet as he plays.  We're not sure why this is missing, we know Erskine considered clogging integral to his music.  Perhaps this was recorded in a carpeted room?
