Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Armenter "Bo Carter" Chatmon (June 30, 1892 - September 21, 1964) was a popular early blues musician. He was a member of the Mississippi Sheiks in concerts, and on a few of their recordings. Carter also managed that group, which included his brother, Lonnie Chatmon, on fiddle and occasionally Sam Chatmon on bass, along with a friend, Walter Vincson, on guitar and lead vocals. Since the 1960s, Carter has become best known for his bawdy songs such as "Banana in Your Fruit Basket," "Pin in Your Cushion," "Your Biscuits Are Big Enough for Me," "Please Warm My Wiener" and "My Pencil Won't Write No More." However, his output was not restricted to risqu music. In 1928, he recorded the original version of "Corrine, Corrina," which later became a hit for Big Joe Turner and has become a standard in various musical genres.
