Originally recorded in 1946 by Merle Travis, "Sixteen Tons" went on to become a standard in many circles, and somewhat against the grain, it's an example of a song originally performed by a country artist that crossed over widely into jazz and blues circles. So it is that we have a cracking popcorn R&B-style rendition from Eugene Church here, swinging and as snappy as you like. On the back, a top side from the great Titus Turner, whistling and singing an ode to a girl named "Coralee."
