There is no info in the liner notes as to who's backing on the tracks. Neither is there any reference to the tracks in "Blues Records"from Mike Slaven.

Notes James Watkins as the piano player on Grievin' blues.

Thank you for this incredible paradise of so many forgotten records.
Could you please reupload this one?
No megaupload and others are long gone.

Thank you for posting this first rate CD that had become very very hard to find! Danceland was a very small indpendent label which recorded John Lee Hooker at a very early stage of his career.
If it's still a mystery? All tracks recorded in Detroit.
