    D A Hunt
    Greyhound Blues 7" Single (vinyl)

    Daniel Augusta Hunt, better known as Junior Hunt, was born in Munford, AL in 1929.
    On or around March 11th, 1953, Hunt recorded these two songs at 706 Union Avenue in Memphis and they were released in June of that year.
    For over 50 years, these songs were believed to only exist in 78 rpm form, until a copy pressed as a 45 rpm 7” single turned up in Minnesota.
    This only known copy was sold on eBay in 2010 for $10,323.
    This marks the first legitimate release of Hunt's material on a 7" record, and both songs are outstanding examples of the heartbreaking, desolate nature of the solo bluesman accompanying himself on guitar and borrow heavily from the template set by Lightnin' Hopkins.
    Hunt was arrested in Memphis in 1958 for stealing a saxophone and died in May 1962 in Phoenix, AZ.
