Did you try it with this song? Please tell me how as it fails for me:

$ youtube-dl

with the --verbose flag and include its complete output.

Fortunately I have a Soundcloud account so was able to download it.
Good song Dave and nice blues sound and feel. I'm pleased to hear you 
getting back to the roots although I enjoy your adventurous stuff too. 
Mississippi John Hurt was one of the best of the old blues masters.
