He talks on track A5, and title is discovered from this track. Dialogue: "As you know, Piano has been my instrument for the last...(break) ever since 1950, but I started out on a guitar and you heard all my records have been Piano. I'm gonna do a number on guitar and im gonna do this for curiosity, I'm not doing this for money because if I was doing it for money I would starve to death. This here (guitar) became a starvation box for me ever since 1946, and I even sold my guitar because I could never get any jobs with it and I never made any money from it. I put my guitar up on the shelf and ever since it became a starvation box to me, I call this tune "Starvation Box" as there ain't no sense of me starving to death. This is my version of "Arthur Big Boy's" (Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup) song...(break) I never could be like "Ol Big Boy" but here is my version.
Date on sleeve (container) states 1961.
