Here are a few changes and additions recently made to Weenie Juke:

Our regular playlist rotation is now 'weighted'.  Pre-War Country Blues=heavy rotation (70 on a scale of 100), Post War Country Blues=medium rotation (50 on a scale of 100) and Revivalist=light rotation (30 on a scale of 100).  The Rotation and Request Policy  (http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?Itemid=47&?topic=478.0)has been updated to reflect this change.


Changes are now reflected on the Playlist Schedule  (http://weeniecampbell.com/juke/schedule.php)page.

Cheers,
slack

An additional change:

Much improved Playlist (http://weeniecampbell.com/juke/playlist.php?limit=25) Search function.  You can now search by Title, Artist or Album.  If more than one key word is entered in the search box, the boolean operator used is AND instead of OR - which should return a narrower, more accurate listing.

Greetings All

I've added a Juke Server Staus (http://weeniecampbell.com/juke/scstats/status.php) menu option to the Juke Page (http://weeniecampbell.com/juke).? This will give us the status of the two relay servers we use to broadcast Weenie Juke Radio.? Among the 'more than we need to know' information listed:


Here is a reference for the Country Codes: http://www.bcpl.net/~j1m5path/isocodes.html

Lesse, a few minutes ago we had: the US (of course), Italy, Thailand, Great Britain, Australia and Finland? ?:D

Hello slack... wondering about requesting some CDs be added.  I think some Weenie listeners would be interested in hearing the 2 CDs dedicated to fiddling blues put out by "Old Hat".   There are wonderful examples of some of the great fiddlers from the pre-war era.  These are still available at Elderly...

Hello All,

I've overhauled the Juke's scheduling system in an attempt to make scheduled events more reliable and easier to manage.  I made many changes, so there are bound to be some configuration errors. You can help keep an eye on running events and report any you see that look out of place or not running at all.  I've added a "Now Playing" header to the Juke Playing page that will (or should) list what program or show what event the Juke is running.  The Juke should be running events according to this Schedule (http://weeniecampbell.com/juke/schedule.php), otherwise it should be "Regular Rotation".  I've also made some small adjustments to the schedule itself:

Religious and Gospel' - from two hours to one hour (each slot)
Moved 'Rare and Un-Reissued' from Tuesday to Saturday
Wednesday 'Weenie Hour' shows are now randomly selected

Cheers,
Slack

Hello All,

While digitizing these LP's (the previous post and this one) I made note that track # _ on LP ______ had a bad skip(at least a three-fer skip).  I was then going to remove the skip when cutting apart the tracks.  Well, I've lost the note and haven't the foggiest idea where that skip is.  So!

If you find the skip and report it here, you will receive a couple of fabulous Weenie Case Stickers And bonus gift of a just-in-time-for-summer - Weenie Fly Swatter.   :D

Hi all,
Wow, there are some heavy hitters in the latest batch of tunes added to the Juke.  Some great songs from relatively lesser known people, too.  Arthur Crudup's "If I Get Lucky" has a great screamy vocal, and his "Mean Old 'Frisco" has a wonderful comping chord up the neck that I heard Louisiana Red use a couple of years ago.  Charlie Pickett's "Down The Highway" is a real one-of-a-kind number, too, with singing right on top of the melody phrased in the guitar and an almost flamenco-ish sounding guitar part.  Charlie Lincoln's "My Wife Drove Me From My Door"  is really beautiful, too, not at all in the mode you might expect from the guy with the most infectious laugh in the Blues; it's a sad song, and if you like twelve-string played in Spanish, it's pretty hard to beat.  Then there's the Peg Leg Howell tunes, including the great "Coal Man Blues".  I remember getting this set when it first came out and I was really wowed by it.  There's lots to listen to and enjoy on "The Rural Blues".
All best,
Johnm

If the companies promoting satellite radio would like to get me interested, all they need to do it find a way to broadcast Weenie Juke Radio. Maybe someday...? ? ;)

Big Boy Teddy Edwards:  Complete Recorded Works  1930-1936 (Doc)
Dan Pickett:  1949 Blues


dj's notes on these CD's:
The first 4 songs of the Teddy Edwards all share the same melody and are interesting  primarily in that they're accompanied on the tiple.  After that, he joined up with a hot little group (Big Bill Broonzy, Black Bob, and Papa Charlie Jackson) and recorded some very nice hokum, blues and pop.

Dan Pickett is a pseudonym for James Founty.  He's a guy from Alabama recording a primarily East Coast repertoire in a style that sounds like he hung out in Texas for a while.  Very nice stuff.

Larry Johnson (with John Hammond) - Midnight Hour Blues

Henry Townsend - Cairo Blues


The Henry Townsend record is really tremendous. He's joined by Mike "Backwards Sam Firk" Stewart on most tracks and there's an occasional, slight clash of harmonic sensibilities, but overall just a great blend. Henry Brown play piano on one track and Townsend's wife Vernell offers some vocals on another. Townsend mostly plays guitar throughout (piano on two tracks, one of which, "She Walked Away" is wonderfully greasy). A high intensity record of subtle material, with great singing and playing and foot-stomping.

The record has a great version of Cairo Blues, a really, really cool version of Tired of Being Mistreated. On the Adelphi/Genes/Blues Vault series.

Various Artists - Chicago Blues Vol. 1 (1939-1951)
Various Artists - The Tommie Bradley - James Cole Groups 1928-32
Michael Jerome Browne - Michael Jerome Browne (selected tracks)


and a few notes from DJ:

Country Blues Collector's Items (1930 - 1941):  The complete recorded works of Tommy Griffin and One Arm Slim and the pre-war recordings of Frank Edwards.  That's Walter Vincson on guitar (when present) on the Tommy Griffin cuts.  Frank Edwards is playing guitar and rack-mounted harmonica with Washboard Sam on washboard.  One Arm Slim is accompanying himself on piano on "Howling Man Blues" - not bad if he really only had one arm.   Note the J. T. "Funny Papa" Smith influence on that one.
 
Chicago Blues Volume 1 (1939 - 1951):  The complete recorded works of Alfred Fields (with Bill Broonzy on guitar) and Tony Hollins, and Johnny Shines's Columbia and Chess recordings.

and a few notes from DJ:

One Arm Slim is accompanying himself on piano on "Howling Man Blues" - not bad if he really only had one arm. 
When that title was first issued on LP in 70s (New Deal Blues - Mamlish S-3801) note writers Mike Stewart & Don Kent made this observation:

"One Arm Slim's piano is rather erratic due to the fact that he is probably using only one hand (as the only low notes appear to be coming from the string bass), though he is producing a lot of sound with it. Slim extends his phrases until he sees fit to end them, usually longer than four bars. Apparently, this does not bother his accompanist, Big Bill, who stays with Slim all the way through. Bill is playing in standard tuning, key of E, capoed up, and was very likely at the technical peak of his powers at this time."

Back then it was thought that BBB was the guitarist but over the years there seems to have been a change of opinion and said guitarist now appears in B&GR4 as "unknown".

The electric guitar certainly sounds like Big Bill.  And there are some shouts in the background of several songs that are unmistakably by Big Bill.  I suppose it could be George Barnes on guitar with Broonzy visiting in the studio and adding a bit of vocal encouragement.    Off the top of my head I can't think of anyone but Broonzy and Barnes who got that sound at that time.

In 1996 when Chris Smith published his BBB sessions discography (Hit The Right Lick) he left Broonzy as a possibilty. I guess this was because Broonzy was in the studio that day taking part in Jazz Gillum and Washboard Sam sessions - as was George Barnes. Smith's other listed possibility for the guitar player is Willie B James.

That's interesting.  I don't think of Willie B.

Jimmie Gordon - Complete Recorded Works Vol 1 (1934 -1936)

Washboard Sam - Complete Recorded Works Vol 1 (1935 -1936)


With some history and listening notes from DJ:

Jimmie Gordon: Complete Recorded Works, Volume 1 - I don't know a lot about Jimmie Gordon, and I guess not a lot is known about him.  He was the pianist in Bumble Bee Slim's band off and on for at least a few years in the 1930s  The track "I'll Take You Back" was recorded with a 6 piece band at a Bumble Bee Slim session in September 1935, seven months before the Harlem Hamfats debuted their "large band" sound.  Interestingly, for someone who was a piano player in someone else's band, Gordon didn't play piano on all his records.  Gordon, along with people like Bumble Bee Slim and Bill Gaither, was unfortunately forever tarred by Sam Charter's dismissal of his sound as being part of the "Bluebird Beat" and having a cookie-cutter, impersonal sound.  But like Slim and Gaither he was a good singer and an interesting lyricist who rewards a closer listen.
 
Washboard Sam:  Complete Recorded Works, Volume 1 - With Bill Broonzy on guitar on all tracks, and Black Bob on piano when present.  Since Johnm brought up groundhogs in the Lil' Son Jackson discussion the other day, I should point out that there's another groundhog here.  But unlike most of the songs involving groundhogs, where the animal is rooting in the singers back yard trying to get to his woman, Sam himself is the groundhog in "I'm A Prowling Groundhog", celebrating his ability to root around in other men's back yards.

FWIW in 1971 Tony Russell wrote 1500 words on Gordon and his era based upon his 78 collection in an attempt to drum up interest in an artist who, at the time, could only be heard on a German EP.

Barrelhouse Piano Blues and Stomps (1929 - 1933):  The complete recorded works of three more biographical blanks - Herve Duerson, Turner Parrish and Kingfish Bill Tomlin.  If any Juke listeners are interested in piano solos, there are some excellent ones here, both from Duerson, who does some barrelhouse on "Avenue Strut" and "Naptown Special", then turns in a nice ragtime performance on "Easy Drag", and finishes with a waltz with some nice programmatic effects on "Evening Chimes Waltz", and from Parrish, who does some outstanding boogie and barrelhouse on "Trenches" and "Fives".

Various Artists - Rare Country Blues Complete Recorded Works Vol. 3 1928-1936

Various Artists - Traveling Through The Jungle

Various Artists - San Antonio Blues 1937


And some notes from dj on two of the CDs:

Rare Country Blues Volume 3:  The complete works of Kid Cole, Bob Coleman, Walter Coleman, and the Cincinnati Jug Band.  Kid, Bob, and Walter may all be the same person, or they may be two people who sound very similar (brothers?)  There's lots of good music here in many different configurations -vocal and guitar, vocal harmonica and guitar, vocal and 2 guitars, jug band instrumental, etc.  That may be Jesse James on piano on the second version of Mama Let Me Lay It On You and Carry Your Good Stuff Home.  The CD also features the work of two Atlanta-area 12-string players, Billy Bird and Too Tight Henry (Henry Lee Castle), the latter sounding very Willie McTell-ish on Charleston Contest, Parts 1 & 2.
 
San Antonio Blues 1937:  Three Texas pianists and a small band, all recorded in San Antonio in 1937.  Big Boy Knox is a basic pianist but a wonderful vocalist, kind of like a lighter-voiced Jesse James.  Son Becky does a couple of nice mid-tempo blues with his piano and a chording guitar, then kicks it into gear with the addition of a washboard for three rollicking up tempo numbers.
Pinetop Burks recorded his first number with Son Becky's guitar and washboard accompanists.  It's a 1930's Hokey Pokey: "Stick your right foot out, stick your right foot in, now shake the shack".  After that he records solo, demonstrating a good singing voice and the most virtuoso playing of the three pianists here.  Rounding out the disk are six songs by Ted Mays & His Band, a small group that's in the intersection of jazz, blues and pop.  Their first song is Gee, It Must Be Love, which will be better known to most Weenies from Willie McTell's 1940 version for the Library of Congress.

I see that with the latest additions, there are now over 12,000 songs on the Juke.  Two years ago, when I first discovered Weenie Campbell, there were just over 2,000.  That's quite an amazing increase.  A hearty thank you to everyone responsible for this!

To put this number in perspective, you could listen to the Juke 24 hours a day for 25 days and never hear the same song twice.

I'd definitely recommend this one to fans of Sleepy John Estes. Tracks are about 2/3 ensemble tunes featuring John "Knocky" Parker on piano, Ed Wilkinson on bass, and Sleepy John's old buddy Hammie Nixon on harmonica. The solo tracks are very interesting to hear since he so often played with other people and I really like them. As usual, I suspect SJ's simple sounding accompaniment might be difficult to duplicate. "Someday Baby", "Death Valley Blues", "Down South Blues", and "Milk Cow Blues" are solos.  Singing is tremendous throughout. This was his first record after rediscovery I believe, and I'd wager anyone present was thinking "Holy crap! Is this cool or what?"

The Sun recordings are listed in the Charly 9 LP box set (1985). This was rejigged as a CD set in 1996, which Stefan also lists. Unfortunately Charly fell foul of MCA over the inclusion of Sun recordings that were originally licensed to, and released by, Chess (e.g. Dr Ross, Jackie Brenston etc) - all stocks of the CD box set had to be withdrawn and destroyed. Why Chess never took this action with the LP box set remains a mystery, but those who managed to purchase the CD set have a minor "collector's item".

But there I go again, running off at the mouth with matters inconsequential to the original post.

I've added a test half a dozen of those where DJ's short reviews have prompted further discussion. Major drawback is that one has to trawl the entire 13 pages here in order to try to spot the tagged discussion. To be honest I found it quicker using Forum Search! C'est la vie....

Watch this space BH. The tags mod, as implemented in its standard form, has been a truly excellent prototype for us all to understand what we really need around here. Totally agree with all your points.

There will likely be a solution proposed in the near future. Rest assured the work the tagging posse is doing now will not get unceremoniously dumped in the process, on the contrary.

Son House - Father Of The Delta Blues: The Complete 1965 Sessions

Stovepipe No. 1: Complete Recorded Works (1924-1950) & The Jug Washboard Band (1928)  We don't know where Stovepipe No. 1 (Sam Jones) was born or how old he was, but he spent most of his adult life in Cincinnati.  He played some fairly simple guitar, better harmonica, kazoo, and was a virtuoso on the stovepipe.  It's unfortunate that only 10 of the 32 titles he recorded either by himself or with David Crockett survive, because he played in an extraordinarily broad range of styles.  From his first day of recording, on August 19, 1924, two religious songs survive.  From his second day a day later, four square dance tunes were issued, 2 of which, Cripple Creek and Turkey In The Straw, include called instructions to dancers.  Three years later, Stovepipe was back in the studio with David Crockett, a biographical unknown except for the fact that he lived in Cincinnati for about ten years in the 1920s and 1930s.  Crockett was a better guitarist than Stovepipe and played some basic harmonica.  Together, Stovepipe and Crockett recorded one issued blues and three minstrel/vaudeville/hokum numbers.  Both were back in the studio on December 11, 1930 with a mandolin player remembered only as "Dude" as King David's Jug Band, with stovepipe taking the place of the jug, recording six varied and raucous titles.  The CD is rounded out with the four titles recorded by the Tub Jug Washboard Band. 

Speckled Red - Complete Recorded Works (1929 - 1938):  Even in the studio, Red sang and played piano as if he were straining to be heard at a house party or juke joint - not a bad thing at all.  That's Willie Hatcher on mandolin, Robert Lee McCoy (later Robert Nighthawk) on guitar, and John Lee "Sonny Boy" Williamson on harmonica where present.  In spite of the "1929 - 1938" in the title, Dad's Piece, Oh Red, and Early In The Morning are from 1956.

Various Artists - Piano Blues, Vol. 2 (1927 - 1956):

L. C. Prigett, accompanied by Clarence T. Walker on Piano.  Willie Jones, accompanied by unknown piano and guitar (recorded at the same time and place as Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell's first session.  Could it be them? As Howard Rye's notes say, "Listeners will have to make their own judgments").  Unknown (Not his complete works :-) ).  Jesse Clayton
("Almost certainly Peter J. "Doctor" Clayton - Howard Rye again). Barrel House Buck McFarland, with probably Peetie Wheatstraw on guitar where present, Lem Johnson on clarinet, and an unknown violinist. McFarland was apparently enamored of the verse "Nero made me a soldier
of the cross / My baby quit me then I know my soul is lost, and used it frequently.  Charlie Segar (Key Board Wizard Supreme).  And Doug Suggs, who, in an interesting aside, apparently worked as a porter at Comiskey Park (a majpor league baseball park in Chicago, for European Weenies) at the same time that Jimmy Yancey worked on the grounds crew there.

Various Artists - Piano Blues, Vol 6 (1933 - 1938):

Whistlin Rufus, Earl Thomas, "Peg Leg" Ben Abney, and Curtis Henry singing and accompanying
themselves.  St Louis Red Mike Bailey  singing accompanied by Blind John Davis and Black Bob on piano, with unknown guitar and washboard.

Harlem Hamfats - Complete Recorded Works, Vol 1: 

Mississippi country blues players Joe (guitar) and Charlie (guitar, mandolin)  McCoy, New
Orleans jazz players Herb Morand (trumpet), Odell Rand (clarinet), and Pearlis Williams (drums), and Chicago pianist Horace Malcolm.  Put them all together and they were a sensation in 1936, mixing jazz, swing, blues and pop.

Walter Roland - Complete Recorded Works Volume 1 (1933)


Some notes by DJ:

This is just a wonderful CD, and a revelation to me, as I'd previously only heard Walter Roland as an
accompanist to Lucille Bogan and Josh White.  It turns out he's got a wonderful voice - like a smoky Leroy Carr - is a decent guitar player, and an excellent pianist, able to play boogie, barrel house, and blues. The songs on this CD were all recorded at one three day session in July of 1933, where Roland accompanied Lucille Bogan and Sonny Scott as well as recording on his own and in various combinations with the other two. All songs are by Roland except:

Sonny Scott & Walter Roland:  Man, Man, Man and No Good Biddie - Scott and Roland on guitars and vocal
Sonny Scott:  Early This Morning, Working Man's Moan, Rolling Water - Scott accompanied by Roland on piano
The Jolly Jivers: Jookit Jookit, Piano Stomp, Whatcha Gonna Do, Hungry Man's Scuffle - Jookit Jookit and Piano Stomp are essentially piano solos by Roland with spoken asides by Bogan and Scott.  Whatcha Gonna Do is a hokum song with Roland, Bogan, and Scott taking the verses in turn and all joining in on the choruses.  Hungry Man's Scuffle is a Roland piano solo with Bogan keeping up a running vocal commentary and Scott adding occasional vocal asides and doing a "buck and wing" dance! The Jolly Two: Guitar Stomp, Railroad Stomp, Frisco Blues, and Come On Down - Guitar Stomp and Railroad stomp are beautiful guitar duets with, I assume, Scott playing lead and Roland flatpicking chords and bass runs.  They're both beautiful pieces.  Come On Down is a pop song with Roland and Scott both playing guitar and singing rough vocal harmony and one of them taking a nice solo.  These guys sound like they played
together regularly.

Washboard Sam: Volume 2 (1937 - 1938) - All cuts have Sam singing and
playing washboard accompanied by Black Bob on piano, Big Bill Broonzy on
guitar, Arnett Nelson on clarinet (where present), and an unknown string
bass player.

Kokomo Arnold: Volume 1 (1930, 1934 - 1935) - All tracks are Kokomo
Arnold accompanied by his own guitar.

Harlem Hamfats:  Volume 2 (1936 - 1937) - The same basic personnel as
for Volume 1, with Rosetta Howard joining on occasional vocals.  String
bass chores rotate among Andrew Harris, Ransom Knowling, and John Lindsay.

Bill Gaither:  Complete Recorded Works, Volume 1 -  A Louisville singer
and guitar player who spent some time in Indianapolis, and who was very
influenced by Leroy Carr.  The personnel on all tracks is Bill Gaither,
vocals and guitar and Honey Hill on piano.  All but three of the songs
here were originally released as by "Leroy's Buddy".  For those who are
interested, this CD contains "Bad Luck Child which John Miller discussed
recently in the "Blues Forms and Vocal Phrasing" topic in the Weenie
Main Forum.

Bill Gaither:  Complete Recorded Works, Volume 5 - Gaither sings and
plays guitar on all tracks (well... that may be Jessie Ellery on guitar
on Gaither's last session).  The pianists are a mixed bag including
Blind John Davis, Leonard "Baby Doo" Caston, and possibly Joshua
Altheimer.  The string bass player, as is so often the case, is unknown.

Bumble Bee Slim:  Complete Recorded Works, Volume 1 - Slim's real name
was Amos Easton.  He was born in Brunswick, Georgia, left home in his
teens and traveled for a number years both with shows and as a hobo,
then settled in Indianapolis around 1928.  It's interesting that Easton
was originally from Georgia, because on his first session, for Paramount
in 1931, he recorded 6 songs accompanying himself on slide guitar
(apparently the only time he'd play guitar on record), and to me he
sounds very much like Fred McMullin, who recorded with Curley Weaver in
1933.  Starting with his second session, in 1932 for Vocalion, Slim
switched to a Leroy Carr influenced sound.  On the band tracks, Slim is
accompanied by Myrtle Jenkins, Tom Dorsey, and Jimmie Gordon on piano
and by Willie B. James, Ted Bogan (on the tracks on which Howard
Armstrong plays mandolin) and a couple of unknowns (Bogan and Armstrong
again?) on guitar.

Bumble Bee Slim: Complete Recorded Works, Volume 4 - Amos Easton
recorded enough material to fill 8 CDs, which puts him in the company of
the likes of Big Bill Broonzy, Memphis Minnie, Washboard Sam, and Tampa
Red in terms of popularity in the 1930s.  On this volume, Slim sings
accompanied by (mostly) Jimmie Gordon and (occasionally) Black Bob on
piano, with Charlie McCoy, Bill Broonzy, and Scrapper Blackwell on
guitar.  That's Washboard Sam on washboard, when present.

Jefferey's "Watergate Blues" is a fun tune (''oooh Mr. Nixon, somebody's sure got to go"), and unexpected subject matter for blues - although Watergate sure gave a lot of people the blues.  There's actually another political song in the mix with Thomas Shaw's "Hey Mr. Nixon."

Crazy Blues: The Best of Mamie Smith - Often cited as the gal who started it all, with the smash hit "Crazy Blues", but also viewed somewhat critically as not exactly a blues singer. I think her singing is quite good, and while not Bessie Smith bluesy, it is more blues-inflected than some commentators allow in their dismissals. In her upper range, and clarity of tone and pitch, she sometimes reminds me of Georgia White. Some fun material, IMHO. Victoria Spivey thought so too.

Boogie Woogie & Barrelhouse Piano Volume 1 - Pine Top Smith is without a doubt the best-known performer here.  Born in Alabama, he was based in Pittsburgh from about the age of 16, then moved to Chicago when he started recording in 1928.  He was killed by a stray bullet while playing in a dance hall in March of 1929.  Pine Top Smith's influential "Pine Top Blues" and "Pine Top's Boogie Woogie" are here, along with six other songs that hark back to Smith's years on the black vaudeville circuit.  That may be Mayo Williams doing the spoken parts.  Jabo Williams was from Birmingham Alabama, and shares some repertoire - "House Lady Blues" and "Fat Mama Blues" - with Walter Roland, who was also from Birmingham.  He apparently also spent some time on Biddle Street in East St. Louis.  Nothing is known about Freddie "Redd" Nicholson.  He's accompanied by Charles Avery, another biographical mystery, on all tracks except "Tee Roller's Rub", where J.H. Shayne occupies the piano stool.

Bill Gaither Volume 2 - Bill Gaither on vocals and guitar.  Honey Hill on piano on all tracks, with an unknown string bass player on a few songs.

Butterbeans And Susie Volume 1:  A couple of vaudeville singers, dancers, and comedians.  They met in 1912 and were married on stage shortly after that.  While the songs on this disc are mostly comedy duets from their vaudeville act, both Butter and Sue had great voices, as you can hear when they're given the chance to cut loose.  They're accompanied on piano by Clarence Williams on some songs, Eddie Heywood on others.  King Oliver makes an appearance on cornet on two songs.  Blind Willie McTell fans should note that Butter and Sue's version of "A To Z Blues" is here.

Lee Brown:  A singer with a high nasal tenor voice reminiscent of J. B. Lenoir, and a  decent pianist, nothing much is known about Brown.  He may have come from western Tennessee, based on the fact that he accompanied Sleepy John Estes and Charlie Pickett on a session, and that he mentions Ripley in a song.  Brown was fortunate to record in a lot of different musical settings - solo, piano/guitar duet (with Sleepy John Estes on guitar), in a small jazz band led by Sammy Price (Sam Price's Fly Cats), in a blues band with Rhythm Willie on harmonica and Bill Gaither on guitar, and with a few other configurations to boot.

Kokomo Arnold - Kokomo Arnold Volume 2:  1935 and 1936 sessions, almost all with just Arnold and his guitar, but two songs where Arnold accompanies Roosevelt Sykes.

Peetie Wheatstraw - Peetie Wheatstraw Volume 5:  From 1937 - 38.  Peetie Wheatstraw on vocals and piano with guitar accompaniment.  Kokomo Armold, Lonnie Johnson, possibly Charlie Jordan, and the ubiquitous Unknown split the guitar duties.

Monkey Joe Coleman - Monkey Joe Volume 2:  Two 1939 sessions by "Monkey Joe And His Music Grinders".  The first session features Buster Bennett on sax, Blind John Davis on piano, Willie Bee James on guitar and an unknown drummer with Coleman on vocals.  A later session from the same year has Coleman on piano and vocals  with Bennett again on sax, Big Bill Broonzy on guitar and Alfred Elkins doing the vocal bass lines.   Also featured on the disc are the complete recordings of Jackson Mississippi native Roosevelt Scott.  He first recorded on the same day as Monkey Joe's second 1939 session, using Coleman and his band as backup.  Scott got one more recording session, in early 1940, on which he was accompanied by Monkey Joe on piano with Fred Williams on drums.  Both Coleman and Scott perform only blues here, though as Scott said later, outside the recording studio they played "polka, Italian music, German music...blues too", whatever the customers wanted.

 Elizabeth Washington, who is probably Lizzie Washington, with Aaron Sparks or Stump Johnson on piano on one song, and "Bell" on the other
 Johnnie Strauss, with probably Henry Brown on piano with unknowns on violin and guitar

These are two discs that don't get much respect from reviewers (see The Penguin Guide To The Blues), but I really love them.  The bulk of the material, everything featuring Henry Johnson And His Boys, was recorded by Genett in an April 1927 session featuring various St. Louis artists.  HJ and the boys provide accompaniments that are ambitious and somewhat sophisticated, while  simultaneously being loose and rough-and-ready.  Check out the Hawaiian march featuring Hawaiian guitar and celeste on "Blue Hawaii", and then see how the band moves from sophisticated to primitive with the addition of Henry Johnson's one-string fiddle on "Hawaiian Harmony Blues". When they accompany a vaudevillian like Jelly Roll Anderson, whose vocal models would seem to include Al Jolson, you can imagine both parties walking away from the session saying "You won't believe who I just had to record with!"  Jesse Johnson has been criticized for his singing, but "I Wish I Had Died In Egypt Land" is obviously a vaudeville piece, sung in the black vaudeville convention where the man takes the comedic part and the woman belts the blues (See Butterbeans And Susie or even Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe on their vocal duets).  As for the song itself, it probably made more sense as part of a vaudeville skit.  I wouldn't recommend either of these discs to introduce a stranger to the blues, and they wouldn't be high on my short list to take to a desert island, but as a peek into some the dustier corners of the blues world of the late 20s and early 30s, they're absolutely fascinating and stand up well to repeated listening.  The music isn't half as bad as it's often reputed to be!

Frank "Springback" James and George Curry
- Willie Bee James on guitar and Fred Williams on drums accompany Springback James.  George Curry, who was noted as "Leroy's Best Friend" in the Vocalion files, is probably accompanied by Frank James on piano, Hobson "Hop" Johnson on guitar, and definitely by Unknown on bass.  Nothing is known of either artist, though James, on the evidence of song selection and vocal asides, may have been from Alabama.  Note writer Chris Smith puts it aptly - "In George Curry and Springback James we hear two of the everyday blues musicians of the thirties, always competent, capable of occasional flashes of individual artistry, but mostly content to acknowledge the inspiration of Leroy Carr".

Various Artists:  Great Harp Players - Richard Sowell accompanied by William Francis on guitar, Ollis Martin, El Watson, accompanied by Robert cooksey on second harmonica on "El Watson's Fox Chase", Palmer McAbee, George "Bullet" Williams, Blues Birdhead with The Bubbling-Over five (Bob Brown, vocal) or unknown piano, Ellis Williams, Alfred Lewis, and Smith and Harper.  All playing harmonica and occasionally singing, all accompanied by unknowns, except where noted above, where accompaniment is present.  A fascinating sampling of early harmonica repertoire.  I don't know if everything here would really count as "great", but it's all down-home, for sure.

Harlem Hamfats:  Harlem Hamfats Volume 3:  Herb Morand, Joe Mccoy, and Rosetta Howard on vocals, with Herb Morand (trumpet), Odell Rand or Buster Bailey (clarinet), Joe McCoy (guitar), Charlie McCoy (guitar and mandolin), John Lindsay (bass), and Fred Flynn (drums).

Sonny Boy Williamson - Sonny Boy Williamson Volume 4:  Sonny Boy's recordings from early 1941 to mid 1945.  Most of his previous sessions had had Sonny Boy playing with musicians that were somewhat "country", such as Big Joe Williams, Robert Lee McCoy, and Yank Rachell.  But this set finds him playing with the Chicago studio regulars.  The piano stool is held down by Blind John  Davis, except for the 1945 session where Eddie Boyd takes over.  The rest of the band includes guitarists Big Bill Broonzy, Charlie McCoy, Ted Summit, and Bill Sid Cox, bassists William Mitchell, Ransom Knowling, and Alfred Elkins, with Jump Jackson on drums on one session and Washboard Sam scratching the tin on another.

Charlie Spand - The Complete Paramounts:  Recorded 1929 - 1931.  Not much is known of Charlie Spand.  In "Evil Wonman Spell" he names Elljay Georgia as his birthplace.  He lived in Detroit in the 1920s, and Little Brother Montgomery recalled him working with Blind Blake in Chicago.  He must have been one of Paramount's better sellers, as he was one of the artists on "Hometown Skiffle".  Most of the cuts here are just Spand on vocal and piano, though Blind Blake makes an appearance on a few numbers, as does a different, unknown guitarist.

Bumble Bee Slim - Bumble Bee Slim Volume 2:  Jimmy Gordon, Black Bob, and Unknown on piano, Carl Martin, Ted Bogan, Willie Bee James, Charlie McCoy, and Bill Broonzy on guitar, and probably Howard Armstrong violin on "Blue Blues".

Leadbelly - 1939-1947 Volume 5, 27 Oct 1944-Oct 1946 DOCD-5311

This disc combines a few rather different recording sessions. The first is from Hollywood, with excellent sound on 2 tracks (Sweet Mary Blues and Grasshoppers In My Pillow). There are a number of tracks taken from a radio recording of a concert Leadbelly did for children in San Francisco on Feb 15, 1945, the Standard School Broadcast. The show features numerous spoken intros here as he explains the songs to the kids, who are singing along on some songs. Then a session with Sonny and Brownie, plus Willie the Lion Smith (piano) and George "Pops" Foster (string bass). Last is a session with Woody Guthrie and Cisco Houston, recorded c. October 1946. There is mandolin on a few of these tracks, a jug on one (Fiddler's Dram, the most interesting, IMO), so possibly there is someone in addition to Woody and Cisco here. No mandolin or jug is listed in the instrumentation notes for the CD.

Just to clarify, both Woody Guthrie and Cisco Houston are listed as playing guitar on these tracks. It could be Woody playing mandolin. I don't know if Cisco played mandolin. Or, it could be an unlisted player. The overall sound suggests to me there are not 3 guitars and a mando, so I suspect it's Woody.

Kansas City Kitty and Georgia Tom - 1930-34 BDCD-6023 - some fairly standard hokum vocal duets. Tampa Red shows up on the first 2 tracks. This material can sound pretty repetitive, so good to listen to it mixed up with other stuff on the Juke, but Georgia Tom is always a nice laid back pianist. The standout song is probably "How Can You Have the Blues?" which some Port Townsend veterans may know from a version done by Suzy Thompson and Del Rey. I don't know whether Kitty's identity has ever been totally solved, but Georgia Tom said she was Mozelle Alderson (who was also likely Jane Lucas and Hannah May).

It's been hard days for music lovers of late. Here are a couple of records to remind us of two of the people we've lost, first John Cephas, then Bob Guida:

Cephas and Wiggins - Sweet Bitter Blues. John and Phil recorded these tracks in 1981 and 1982 in Europe, while they were on tour in the American Folk Blues Festival there. The recordings made there constituted their first two records I believe, and this is the CD reissue of one of them.

Otis Brothers - Let's Go to Huntin', The Return of the Otis Brothers. Weird and wonderful, not all blues, but close enough. See this thread for discussion: http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?amp;Itemid=128&topic=4734.0

As a duo they were first recorded in mid-1980 by Pete Lowry of this parish but have never been released. That was followed by an L&R studio LP of them recorded at various locations (42.031).

John was first recorded by Joe Wilson in mid 1976 (also not released) and from memory there were about half a dozen numbers. I own a Blue Ridge LP that contains three songs (1976 & 1977) one of which first appeared on vol. 9 of the 15 LP Library of Congress bi-centennial series. The booklet contains a nice photo of him taken in 1976 by Joe Fox.

The McCoy Brothers Vol 1 1934-36 BDCD-6019 - Some later recordings of Joe and Charlie McCoy, not necessarily playing together. The disc includes the Hallelujah Joe sides. It's your choice whether Joe can possibly be serious here, having recorded "One More Greasing" as Georgia Pine Boy on Jan 9 1935 and then "The Prodigal's Return (The Things I Used to Do I Don't Do No More)" as Hallelujah Joe on Jan 15 1935. There are a couple sides from Papa Charlie's Boys (Charlie McCoy) as well, including a pop-ier, or perhaps Hamfats-ier, version of "Too Long" than the one many will be used to from Charlie McCoy or the Mississippi Sheiks - in much better shape than his earlier version too.

Territory Singers Vol 2 DOCD-5471 - Not really the Territory, more a term used to "round up singers working who worked outside the familiar centres of Chicago and New York", according to Tony Russell's notes. Singers include Ollie Ross, Hattie Burleson, Jewell Nelson, Cleo Gibson, David Pearson, Mel Parker, Horace Smith, and Hattie Snow. Some interesting stuff here - Hattie Burleson is a pleasure, as is Ollie Ross. There's a fair amount of trumpet and cornet on these records as well. And a fair amount of banjo (chordal backup).

Blind Roosevelt  Graves and Brother: Blind Roosevelt Graves and Brother - Roosevelt Graves (guitar, vocal) and his brother Uaroy (tambourine, vocal) play a mix of secular and sacred music on two sessions.  On the first, recorded for Paramount in July 1929, they're accompanied by Will Ezell on piano and Baby Jay on cornet.  On their second session, for ARC in July 1936, they're accompanied by Cooney Vaughn on piano where present.  Both the secular music, recorded as the Mississippi Jook Band, and the sacred music from this session are outstanding.

Roosevelt Sykes: Roosevelt Sykes Volume 3 - Sykes accompanying himself on 8 songs and accompanying a mixed bag of minor St Louis singers (Emerson Mosby, James "Stump" Johnson, Matthew McClure, Ethel Smith, Isabel Sykes, Clarence Harris, Frank Pluitt, Carl Rafferty, and Napolean Fletcher).  Perhaps the most interesting performance is Sykes accompanying the jazzy violin of Artie Mosby.

Cripple Clarence Lofton: Cripple Clarence Lofton Volume 1 - It's unfortunate that Lofton did the bulk of his recording for people interested in his boogie woogie piano, as the tracks where he's allowed to sing show him to be an excellent vocalist.  On Lofton's vocal numbers, he's accompanied by Big Bill Broonzy on guitar where a guitarist is present.  He also accompanies Red Nelson on four songs (two with Al Miller on guitar and an unknown bassist) and appears on two songs as part of All Miller And His Swing Stompers, who consist of Lofton, Al Miller on guitar and vocals, Odell Rand on clarinet, and an unknown bass player.

Leroy Carr: Leroy Carr Volume 5 - By the time these tracks were recorded in 1934 Leroy Carr was suffering both from alcoholism and from the kidney disease that would eventually kill him.  Whether by choice or at the behest of the record company, he'd largely abandoned the pop songs, hokum, and hybrid forms that had appeared with frequency in his earlier work.  But he was still in fine voice and could pound out uptempo numbers like "Barrel House Woman" and "Bo Bo Stomp" along with slower blues.  He's accompanied, of course, by Scrapper Blackwell on guitar, with the addition of Josh White on second guitar on "Big Four Blues", Broken Hearted Man", "Hustler's Blues", Eleven Twenty-Nine Blues", and "You've Got Me Grieving".

Bumble Bee Slim: Bumble Bee Slim Volume 3 - On most of the tracks here, Slim is accompanied by either Jimmie Gordon (or is it Charlie Segar or Horace Malcolm) on piano and Charlie McCoy (or someone else) on guitar or Black Bob (possibly Horace Malcolm) on piano with Big Bill Broonzy on guitar, depending on whether you're reading the third or fourth edition of B&GR.  On "Big 80 Blues" and "Bricks In My Pillow" that's Myrtle Jenkins tickling the ivories.  The first six songs on the disc find Slim in the company of Carl Martin and Ted Bogan, with Bogan sharing vocals on "Way Down In Georgia".

Curtis Jones: Curtis Jones Volume 1 - Up until now, the Juke has had only one song by Curtis Jones, which is unfortunate, as he was a better than average singer and pianist and an excellent lyricist.  Born and raised in Texas, Jones moved to Chicago in 1937, right before he started recording.  "Lonesome Bedroom Blues" was Jones' big hit.  Note that the CD leads off with "Decoration Day Blues", which was recorded five months before Sonny Boy Williamson's version but was unissued at the time.  Jones sings and plays piano on all tracks, with Willie Bee James, Hobson "Hot Box" Johnson, and Big Bill Broonzy sharing guitar duties, with occasional appearances by George Gant on alto sax, Punch Miller on trumpet, Charlie McCoy on mandolin, Washboard Sam on washboard, and Fred Williams on drums.

Altamont: Black Stringband Music: Library of Congress recordings from the 1940s. As with the Earliest Black String Bands disc on Document that was recently added to the Juke and that dj wrote about here (http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?amp;Itemid=128&topic=5391.msg42524#msg42524),  this is not music one would automatically associate with country blues, and in fact includes numerous old-time standards. There is a version of Corinna, played on banjo. Overall, the record is a rare example of banjo and fiddle music played by African-Americans and gives us a clue about some of the music that might have been played before the blues (even though it was recorded in the mid 40s in a general store). Here's what the LoC has to say about it:

"This album brings to light the unique pre-war black stringband style that disappeared with the commercial division of white and black markets. Recorded in the mid-'40s, the two groups on this album, the duo of fiddler Frank Patterson and banjoist Nathan Frazier, and the driving band headed by fiddler John Lusk, offer a tantalizing glimpse into a lost world. Nathan Frazier, banjo, vocal / Frank Patterson, fiddle / Murph Gribble, banjo / John Lusk, fiddle / Albert York, guitar."

The music is, IMO, over-the-top fabulous. These guys have been alluded to a few times on Weenie Campbell, so now those who hadn't heard them get to hear. More weird and wonderful, despite the 2nd hand LoC recording equipment.

Not surprised that Prof. Scratch broke the Juke - you should hear how loudly he attacks guitars in real life! His mighty 12-string, Boris the Beast, doesn't stand a chance. When he played my Kalamazoo once, it was 10 times louder than ever heard before.  ;D

Great work catching up on the playlist there Slack.

Don't forget folks, clicking a 'Buy' link to Amazon on the juke pages, or searching using the Amazon search boxes on the left, earns Weenie Juke Radio a small commission to help keep the lights on.

Just to clarify, because I know it has created some questions, that'Buy' link on the juke just takes you to the respective album- or artist search page on Amazon, from where you can decide to purchase in the usual way. Or not, as the case may be.

In other words it's not like some cash register in the cloud goes 'kerching!' if you click on buy. You still have to purchase it on Amazon in the usual way. It's just that weenie gets a credit if you came from here.

Hmm, cash registers that go 'kerching'. I'm showing my age here.

I'm not familiar with the process of adding recordings (license, fees, etc.) or if it is proper etiquette to make a request but... since there seems to be some crossover would Roscoe Holcomb's "high lonesome sound" be too crossover for the Weenie Juke? The Smithsonian Folkways Blues Collection includes "Graveyard Blues".  :-\

Post by: Slack on October 09, 2012, 12:47:49 PM
Hi Gary,

We do include some old time on the Juke, as well as some old time gospel - both make the listening more interesting.  We'll keep the request for Roscoe Holcomb in mind -- but with all things weenie - no promises.  Generally, recordings are supposed to be owned by one of the site administration staff and licensing is taken care of by LoudCity.  Thanks!
