    Regarding the Eloise Bennett accompaniment: No one seems to know how the Hoke Rice attribution snuck into B&GR, but on aural and other evidence it is highly unlikely. The next edition of B&GR will state: “The unknown guitarist is not a blues or jazz musician but is most unlikely to be Hoke Rice as has been proposed.”
