From "Louie Bluie"


In this footage from Terry Zwigoff's 1985 documentary "Louie Bluie" about the country blues mandolinist Howard Armstrong, "Banjo" Ikey Robinson performs his Charleston hit "My Four Reasons". Ted Bogan is the guitar player and on the upright bass is Howard's son Ralphe Armstrong.

An aged Ikey Robinson proves he hasn't lost his touch with a performance of his signature song, a hokum number giving four solid reasons for mistreating his woman. It was originally recorded by Robinson with his "Bull Fiddle Band" in 1929 featuring exuberant vocalist Frankie "Half-Pint" Jackson.
