Just got this complete run of blues singer, Roosevelt Scott, on Vocalion. These are from two Chicago sessions in 1939 and 1940. Not much is known about Scott judging from scant results of internet searches.

Recorded in Chicago on September 13, 1939.
Roosevelt Scott v / Jesse "Monkey Joe" Coleman p / Fred Williams d.
