PAPA CHARLIE JACKSON

Imatge
Papa Charlie Jackson (c. 1885 – 1938) was an early American bluesman and songster who accompanied himself variously with a hybrid banjo guitar, a guitar, or a ukulele. His recording career began in 1924.Much of his life remains a mystery, but it is probable that he was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and died in Chicago, Illinois in 1938. Born William Henry Jackson, he originally performed in minstrel and medicine shows.] From the early 1920s into the 1930s, Jackson played frequent club dates in Chicago, and was noted for busking at Chicago's Maxwell Street Market. In August 1924, for Paramount Records, he recorded "Papa's Lawdy Lawdy Blues" and "Airy Man Blues", the first commercially successful, self-accompanied recordings by a male singer of the blues. One of his following tracks, "Salty Dog Blues", became his most famous song. Among his recordings are several in which he accompanied classic female blues singers such as Ida Cox, Hattie McDanie…

POTATOES OR TOMATOES ?

Imatge
No tenemos del todo claro si el tema Diggin´my potatoes es original de LEADBELLY ( Huddie William Ledbetter) ó bien éste se limitó a adaptar una canción popular. El caso es que se ha versionado en innumerables ocasiones, una de las mas curiosas es ésta de Brownie McGhee , que no contento con cultivar patatas , las cambió por tomates ..............


Brownie McGhee : Guitar/Vocal
George Washington : Washboard



Baby, they diggin' my potatoes
Lord, they trampin' on my vine
Now I've got a special plan now baby
Lord, that a-restin' on my mind
Now, I don't want no cabbage sprouts,
Bring me a solid head.
S'pose they call the wagon . . . (?)
I catched him in my bed
You know they -- (REFRAIN)
Now my vines is all green
'Tatoes they all red
Never found a bruised one
Till I caught them in my bed
You know they -- (REFRAIN)
Now, I've been all around
Lookin' up and down
Never found my baby
'Cause she was layin' in another town
I know she's diggin' my …

LAFAYETTE LEAKE

Imatge
Lafayette Leake (June 1, 1919 - August 14, 1990) was a blues and jazz pianist, organist, vocalist and composer who played for Chess Records as a session musician, and as a member of the Big Three Trio, during the formative years of Chicago blues. He played piano on many of Chuck Berry's   ( You Tube )  --------------
La Gran Enciclopedia del Jazz de SARPE da como fecha de nacimiento de Lafayette el 4 de Junio de 1920,  estas diferencias de datos suelen ser bastante habituales en las historias de los Bluesmen/Jazzmen de la época  , la mayoría de las veces por carecer de fuentes lo suficientemente fiables, donde recoger sus  biografías muchas de las veces ocultadas o cambiadas por los propios artistas .  Lo cierto es que Lafayette Leake fue un excelente pianista , poco conocido quizás por el gran público debido seguramente a que dedicó buena parte de su carrera a acompañar a otros profesionales. No obstante, entre 1962-63 grabó dos discos como solista , y en el año 69 entraría form…

THE BEATLES

Imatge
A cover of "Match Box Blues" registered for the first time by Blind Lemon Jefferson in 1927 with Okeh Records and modified by Carl Perkins in 1956 to become "Match Box" another different song.

The Beatles recorded this version on June 1, 1964 at Abbey Road, London, England

John Lennon - rhythm guitar
Paul McCartney - bass guitar
George Harrison - lead guitar
Ringo Starr - lead vocal, drums
George Martin - piano





A nadie se le escapa que THE BEATLES empezaron haciendo R&R ( de hecho John Lennon era un fan del Blues tambien ...  recordad.. Yer Blues, etc..... )  para muestra este Match Box Blues, remozado.
En el video posterior podemos oir el tema WHAT GOES ON, la pista número 8  de su 6º álbum Rubber Soul, compuesta originariamente por John Lennon, cuando estaba con The Quarrymen , muestras ciertas reminiscencias Blueseras, ( la letra  podría ser perfectamente la de un buen blues ) y  demuestran una vez mas que no hay que ser un gran cantante ( Ringo ) ni unos g…

Back Door Friend

Imatge
Tony Hollins, Bluesman del Delta compuso este tema, Back Door Friend, en principio con el título de Married Woman Blues , que apareció en disco allá por el año 1941. Jimmie Rogers hizo su propia versión en 1952 , ya cambiándole definitivamente el nombre por el cual será conocido el tema en adelante. Varios artistas lo añadieron a su repertorio entre ellos Lightnin´ Hopkins, que  lo grabó en distintas ocasiones.  Su letra tambien se refiere al asunto de la infidelidad, como en el post anterior, sólo que aquí quizá está tratado sin tanta " agresividad " como el de Willie Dixon & Howlin´Wolf.

Back Door Man

Imatge
"Back Door Man" is a blues song written by Willie Dixon for Howlin' Wolf, released by Chess Records as a B-side to Wolf's "Wang Dang Doodle" in 1961. The song's author Willie Dixon recorded it on his 1970 album I Am The Blues.
In southern culture, the phrase "back-door man" refers to a man having an affair with a married woman, using the back door as an exit before the husband comes home. The phrase "back-door man" dates from the 1920s, but the term became a double entendre in the 1960s, also meaning "one who practices anal intercourse."
The song became an early standard cover song of The Doors and they recorded it for their 1967 debut album.
--------------------------

El tema de las infidelidades es recurrente en el Blues , Back Door Man es uno de los muchos ejemplos , os ofrecemos la versión del mismo creador,  Willie Dixon, la de Howlin´Wolf  receptor,  y la de The Doors.,

LEROY´S BUDDY ( BILL GAITHER )

Imatge
Bill Gaither (April 21, 1910 or 1905or 1908, Belmont, Kentucky — 1956 or more likely 1970) sometimes known as "Little Bill" Gaither or Leroy's Buddy, was an American blues guitarist and singer.
Biography :
Gaither recorded hundred of songs for labels such as Decca, Arhoolie and Okeh.He was often partnered with the pianist George "Honey" Hill, and the duo patterned themselves after Leroy Carr and his guitarist, Scrapper Blackwell.-One of Gaither's most famous blues songs was "Champ Joe Louis", recorded on June 23, 1938 the day after Louis won his rematch against Max Schmeling. Ethnomusicologists have cited Gaither among a group of important but understudied 20th century musicians. His blues lyrics have been appreciated as poetry. Gaither is buried in New Crown Cemetery in Indianapolis, Indiana, where jazz musician Wes Montgomery is also interred.

FRANKIE "HALF-PINT" JAXON

Imatge
Biography by Scott Yanow Frankie "Half Pint" Jaxon was an eccentric singer and a mysterious figure who disappeared after the mid-'40s. Called "Half Pint" due to being 5'2", Jaxon (who was an orphan) grew up in Kansas City. At 15 he began singing in variety shows and at clubs. He toured with a theatrical troupe in Texas and Oklahoma, forming a song and dance team with Miss Gallie De Gaston that did well in vaudeville during 1912-1924. When he was 21, Jaxon began working regularly in Atlantic City (usually the Paradise Café) in the summer and the Sunset Café in Chicago in the winter. An expert at staging shows, Half Pint helped Bessie Smith and Ethel Waters (among others) put on their productions. Jaxon, who also worked as a female impersonator, a pianist-singer, and a saxophonist, was mostly in Chicago during 1927-1941, a period when he made many recordings. In 1930 he formed the Quarts of Joy and he often appeared on the radio in the '30s. Jaxon u…
