Re: Reel St Joseph

This is one of our favorite tunes but we’ve always heard and played it in reverse of this version. Aunt Lu & the Oakland County All Stars recorded it on a sampler album Paint Creek Folk Gathering, Fine Times at Lawnridge Hall’ by Paint Creek Folklore Society members many years ago.
