another one from the archives...

This picture was taken in Xichang in southern Sichuan. In the background is the south gate of the old walled city. The man in the foreground wears typical Mao-era clothes.

(I wonder how much has changed in the meantime.)

Worried Life Blues is a blues standard first recorded by Big Maceo (and Tampa Red) in 1941. It is reported to have been a "big hit", but was released before the charts or similar services began. The song took "Someday Baby Blues" (first recorded by the magnificent Sleepy John Estes in 1935) as a basis. Over the years these two songs have become blurred by various cover versions which use elements from both songs.
