From the original uploader.

This has to be the best sounding MJH concert ever!

Many, many thanks to Dime member Candleman for allowing me to post this unbelievable torrent with corrections. His original notes are included with this torrent.

This show was previously circulating as being from 1970. As Mr. Hurt died in 1966, I conducted a search to determine the correct date. Although I don’t have the exact day of the month, photographs of him taken at the show do exist and are documented as being from July 1964. As the original torrent had the 1970 date on the file names, the file names were changed to generic FLAC numbers (01, 02, etc). No changes to the music itself were made. One addition was made to the setlist, with the identification of track two as “Avalon Blues”. A new md5 canister was also generated. Therefore, if you have this show, your original FLAC files will probably not work.

I need to tell you a story:

The subject of “Stagger Lee” has always been of interest to me. In case you don’t know, Mr. Hurt recorded what is probably the definitive version of this track in 1928. The incident itself is another matter entirely…

All of the conflicting stories of Lee Sheldon’s murder of William Lyons in 1895 over a Stetson hat supposedly stem from a single newspaper article in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Even the Wikipedia version has no references to it, only hearsay. How awful that no one actually knows and that everyoone is making their own version of the story.

To me, that smacks of pure laziness. You would think actual research would have been done by all the different sources quoting it before they opened their big mouths!

Yours truly found the specific newspaper archive organization which has storage rights for this paper during that time period. I also joined Wikipedia in the process, so I could contribute the results. Although they generally don’t do research, the archive organization agreed to make an exception in this case. Here is where we stand right now:

As of today, they are still looking for the article. They did find the obituary for a man named William Lyons in another St. Louis paper, and that is being sent to me (I have to pay a small amount for everything, but it’s worth it). His death is listed in December of 1895. They say there may or may not be a surviving article on surrounding days in the Globe-Democrat (which would be a fantastic thing if they find it), but at least now, someone is actually making an active search.

To me, this is at least a solid shred of evidence that this event actually occured.

Interesting, eh?
