The music industry is not all Grammy smiles and glitter; its closet is a veritable graveyard of skeletons, and when record companies point their collective finger at dot.coms like Napster and yell "Foul!" a hollow ring is heard by the thousands of artists who for decades have been unscrupulously short-changed by some of these very same finger-pointers - Chris Albertson, author's note in Bessie, 2nd ed.

Super Electrical Recordings! / Version of "Bull Doze Blues"
« Last post by LeftyStrat on Today at 05:41:39 PM »
Good evening, all...

I ran across this while listening to audio from Youtube videos at work the other day:



As you'll see, It's a slowed down version (compared to the recording on CDs) of Henry Thomas' "Bull Doze Blues."  I know that some Youtubers will slow down audio on vids like this to avoid copyright strikes, but....

In the description, the uploader claims that this recording is from a 78 he owns.

Can anyone confirm or deny this claim?   The recording sounds interesting and I'm used to the CD, but it would be cool to know if this video is actually how the song is supposed to sound

Hi all,
This is just a late mid-month reminder that the Song of the Month lesson for November, 2019 at my website is Robert Belfour's "Pushin' My Luck", an intense piece in Spanish tuning.  Cost of the lesson during the month of November only is $35.00.  You can listen to the song and pick up the particulars of what is included in the lesson and how to order it in the post immediately prior to this one in this thread.  Thanks.
All best,
Johnm

They were brother and sister, Scratchy! (There are lots of brother acts but not too many brother and sister ones, I don't think.)
