Here is a cover I did yesterday of Jackson C Frank's classic 'Blues Run the Game'.  Probably better known from the late Bert Jansch covering it all through his playing career, as well as lesser publicised but equally unique covers by Nick Drake and Simon and Garfunkel.  It is very ironic that he wrote this around the time he came to England from America with his insurance money in his pocket (from his near fatal involvement in a fire at school when he was a kid) in search of a better life and a career as a musician, and that it never really worked for him and he suffered a life of mental and physical trauma.

There's a bit about Jackson on my website if you are interested.  I'll add this song to the site later on, when i get more than 5 minutes downtime from this hectic existence!! 

Here is my cover of the song, based on the original. http://youtu.be/fkMAdYcHo40

Thanks for watching
