Brooks/Rust notes that the whistling on the Johnson versions is by Johnson himself while the whistling on the Murray version (take 9) sounds like Joe Belmont.
Brooks/Rust associates two different artists with the recording sessions that include this master number. However it is not known whether one of them, or a different artist, is responsible for the recordings that are unattributed here.
