Hazelton is mainly recognized to blues enthusiasts while the harmonica participant who break up an album using the more renowned Eddie “One-String” Jones. Both Hazelton and Jones had been found out by Frederick Usher, Jr. and Richard Barlow in Los Angeles’ skid row in 1960; both had been documented, and both performed for an exclusive gathering, before vanishing once again into obscurity. Hazelton isn’t almost as interesting as Jones, who designed a diddley bow-type device out of the 2 X 4 to try out some slip guitar-like blues on the steel cable. The Hazelton songs, though, also provide a windowpane into unrefined nation blues styles which were hard to find by 1960.
