Hi all,
Bertha Lee is another musician with a lot of unissued titles, especially when compared to the only four titles on which she sang that were released: "Yellow Bee", "Mind Reader Blues", Oh Death" and "Troubled 'Bout My Mother". Recorded but unreleased by Bertha Lee, and on all of which she was accompanied by Charlie Patton, are:
   * From January 30, 1934--Southern Whistle Blues, My Man Blues
   * From January 31, 1934--Dog Train Blues, You're Gonna Miss Me, Honey, I've Got A Mother Up in Kingdom, Ananaias, Listen What She Said, Till The Day Is Done, and Oh Lord I'm In Your Hands
   * From February 1, 1934--God's Word Will Never Pass Away and Whiskey Distillery

That's four titles out of fifteen recorded, not even a third. It's an instance in which we miss the singing and the accompaniments both.

All best,

Not that we’ll ever know, barring some kind of miracle of test pressings surfacing, but I’ve always assumed You’re Gonna Miss Me, Honey was a duet version of Some of These Days.
