A few years ago I read a biography of the Carter Family called Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone. It cites “Little Buckaroo” as the first song Anita Carter joined her mother Maybelle in singing on Mexican Border Radio in 1938. Being such a big fan of Maybelle and her daughters, I had to hear this song. When I did, I knew it was the song to sing with my new friend and musical hero, Jon Langford. Jon is a founding member of the Mekons, a legendary British punk rock band. Jon and I share Jean Cook as our violinist, often duking it out to see who can have her for precious moments on stage. We recorded it in Chicago at the end of a day we had spent with Ella Jenkins. Jon sang about Buffalo Bill, Storey nailed the harmonica solo and we all slept well that night, amazed by the day we had just experienced.
