2. No, but there is supposedly anecdotal evidence of Bolden playing "The Bucket's Got a Hole In It."
3. It was published originally as the "Long Lost Blues," from either 1914 or 1917. It also shows up as part of a published medley of blues pieces called "A Bag of Blues."
It can be found on RHJ by Trixie Smith as "Long Lost, Weary Blues" http://www.redhotjazz.com/trixiesmith.html
