St. James Infirmary Blues by Sweet Sixx & The Wild Pack.
The song was originally recorded in Winter 2015 with a condenser mic, laptop in Punta Banda, Baja California, along with drummer Oscar Quiñones Nogueira of Ensenada, then a couple months later we recorded Phillip on sax
with the same setup and the addition of a liter of tequila in a small office in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico. Phillip recorded the entire song in one take after most of the bottle was empty.
This summer while visiting the beautiful home of a new friend and bassist Cindy "Sis" Mitchel in Corvallis Oregon we became inspired to make a video. We thought this song was perfect for what we had in mind and we've always loved it and Phillip's sax playing. So here you go, our first video.
"St. James Infirmary Blues", sometimes known as "Gambler's Blues," is an American folksong of anonymous origin, though sometimes credited to the songwriter Joe Primrose (a pseudonym for Irving Mills). Louis Armstrong made it famous in his influential 1928 recording.
