|Junior, A Jap Girl's Christmas for His Santa Claus||6605B||Willie Blackwell||7-16-1942||blues||guitar, vocal||Arkansas||at the home of Joe E. Banks, Sadie Beck's Plantation|
“Junior” transcribed as “Junion” on AFS card. This oft-mangled title, to quote Chris Smith, “result[s] from a misunderstanding of Blackwell’s lyric, which refers to sending Junior ‘a Jap’s skull’ [at] Christmas for his Santa Claus [gift].”
Performance followed by blank disc.
