You maybe kind of had to be around at that time, or maybe it's just me, but I really don't like his "Rock Island Line" at all. I'd take Leadbelly over it any day. It is catchy enough once it gets going but the whole track is only 2 and a half minutes and almost half of it is just him talking in a mock American accent. Like Sandman says though it'd be a boring day if we all went for the same thing.
