As we’ve had a little technical issue with this one I’m without a comment from Jon, so will have to take this one on myself and ask Jon to comment below. Apologies too if you have the podcast and were expecting Sailor’s Rest as this is Take This Hammer, a prison work song from the USA first recorded by Leadbelly in 1942. It was collected by Alam Lomax and the earliest record of it seems to be 1915. Wiki is the best on this having a fairly impressive list of those that have recorded the song and also linking it to Nine Pound Hammer and Swannanoa Tunnel. It’s been a while since we’ve had a good Mudcat thread, so I’m happy to report that there’s one here that adds extra verses and all sorts, well worth a few minutes of your time.
