077 – "Stack A Lee"

By Sign on the Window

Sign on the Window isn't the Bob Dylan podcast you need, but it's definitely the one that you want! Each week we select a Dylan song at random, live with the song for a week (or two) and then get together to discuss. This week 1993's rendition of the classic "Stack a Lee." (Episode over art courtesy of Derek McCulloch and Shepherd Hendrix) This is a huge episode: we talk Lee Shelton and Billy Lyons (5:00), break down the history of the song pre-war with emphasis on Mississippi John Hurt, Frank Hutchison, Ma Rainey (14:30) and post-war (25:30) with emphasis on Archibald, Lloyd Price, Taj Mahal, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. We recommend (1:12:00) and we select a Valentine's Day episode (1:18:00). As always, full show notes at our website ( You can also follow along with our weekly real-time Spotify playlist (search "See That My Playlist is Kept Clean") and join the conversation on Twitter (, message us on Facebook (, like on Instagram ( and reblog on Tumblr ( And if you're loving us, consider our Patreon ( For as little as one dollar you get early access to every episode we do as soon as they're edited (and a dedicated feed just for you) and exclusive content that'll only ever be on Patreon.
