Hi Mark,
Thanks for writing. Glad you're enjoying my videos. I have two CDs of Mississippi John Hurt's songs available on CD Baby. Here are the links:
cdbaby.com/cd/lostjim2
cdbaby.com/cd/lostjim3
I greatly appreciate your interest in my recordings of Daddy John's music. You may want to consider visiting Avalon, Mississippi (Hurt's hometown) on the 4th of July for the annual Mississippi John Hurt Blues Festival. - Lost Jim
