Wow - but Bessie Smith spills fire and fury in Hateful Blues on Columbia Record 14023D. Talk about hymns of hate - Bessie sure is a him-hater on this record. The way she tells what she is going to do with her "butcher" will make trifling fellows catch express trains going at 60 miles an hour. The music is full of hate too. You can almost see hate drip from the piano keys. Every note is a half-note. No quarter for anyone - Chicago defender ad, July 1924

Hargus "Pig" Robbins Passes

I'm always amazed when I find out that I've been listening to the same musician(s) for many decades without knowing who they were:

Yes, that's the lot of many a gifted sideman. Their peers hold them in the highest regard, while the public seldom hears of them.

Some just don't crave stardom and all the baggage that comes with it I guess. I can totally understand that.

Yes he has played on a great number of recordings like so many A list folks who never got full acknowledgement of their work.  Not a bad gig doing session work but it doesn't give you name recognition.

Anyone remember Area Code 615? That as close as many got to fame.
