raredance Origin: Deadheads and Suckers (24) RE: 'Deadheads and suckers' History 09 Jul 03

The likely first recording of this song was by "Crockett Ward and His Boys" from Virginia (Okeh 45179). It was recorded on September 26, 1927. Ward and his "boys" (i.e. sons)later became the anchors of the Virginia based string band called the Bogtrotters. As the Bogtrotters they recorded "Deadheads..." again.
