I don't quite get what your saying... but I find it hard to tell sometimes what's Blues and what's country... but who gives a shit... if it's good it's good.

Leadbelly, is it blues, country, folk? Who cares, it's just great music...

"Popular music of early twentieth century America was a watershed of the seminal mix of Celtic,European,African and Hawaiian styles that evolved into jazz,blues and country.

"""Race""" records for the black population and """Hillbilly""" for the white."

Quote......................................[Peter Rowan..Nashville..February 1996]

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

kids and powerpoint presentations are a bad combination.

Trumpet bells ringing
Bass drum is swinging
As the trombone groans
And the big horn moans

Not sure what you getting at as it is based on style, arrangement & instrumentation also your time line is out.

Red Cross Store is an origianlly recorded by Leadbelly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUitj5YgGh8 based on a traditional tune.

Ode to Billy JOe was from 1967.

You first point about style, arrangement & instrumentation is my point, that they have a great similarity, so why the different genre lables.
Your second point ( time line) is incorrect as I only nominated the two clips, it would make my distance observation incorrect as well, had I been thinking of Huddie William Ledbetter's version the comparison would not have came to mind.
