Jug bands like Cannon's Jug Stompers and the Memphis Jug Band had been popular during the 1930s, but Jim Kweskin & the Jug Band had no intention of copying the old style verbatim. In fact, Kweskin stated that the band shouldn't be considered revivalists at all. "We not only have no one 'tradition' to try to be faithful to," he told Nat Hentoff , "but for much of what we play, we don't know if we even have tradition to be concerned with. We can do almost anything we want." For audiences of the time, weaned on moldy ballads and inundated with protest songs, the idea of a folk-styled jug band playing "Memphis" was absolutely intoxicating.
