HELP WANTED: Unknown Band Box Singer

Hey all!

Found this record at an estate sale, right before Thanksgiving. The sale organizer didn't have any information for me. When I looked up the address of the departed individual, it didn't yield anything related to this find.

Listen to "Kool Man's Blues"

While there is lots of information on Band Box records, these songs are not mentioned anywhere. While the label released numerous commercial recordings, the Denver-area studio was also used for "single use," whereas an aspiring singer could go in and record a couple of songs for fun. I'm guessing that is the case with this find. Nothing noted in copyright archives, when I did a search on the titles.

I love the SSW folk vibe with these - just a guy and his guitar. 

Listen to "From The City to the Sea"

 If this sounds familiar to anyone, please drop me a line.
