OVERBOARD * SUGAR BOY AND HIS CANE CUTTERS * CHECKER 783 * USA
New Orleans artist James "Sugar Boy" Crawford first recorded with The Shaw Weez and The Shaweez then under different names: the above Sugar Boy, as well as James Sugar Boy, and later James Crawford. This fast rhythmic and amateurish sounding recording, the B side to I Don't Know What I'll Do, was his first for the Checker label.
