He's not listed (Russell) on that cut. With one exception (Dill Pickle Rag) the harmonica, which Bate usually played & a fiddle (either Stone or Bill Barrett) never appeared together in the same cut. So, I just looked this one up & was wrong about the fiddler, on this one it was Bill Barrett rather than Stone. Stone, Barrett & Charlie Arrington, fiddler with Warmack's Gully Jumpers are hard to tell apart. What sets the Bate band above all the rest is Liggett's banjo picking & Albright's rhythmic bowed bass.
