I sing city blues... My style of singing has nothing to do with the part of the country I come from. It comes from my soul within. The heartaches and the things that have happened to me in my life - that's what makes a good blues singer - Lonnie Johnson, from Giles Oakley's The Devil's Music, BBC

It says that on the front of the Blues Images calendar as well (Hattie Hyde aka Hattie Hart).

So what? An earlier Tefteller calendar identified two cuts sung by Washboard Sam as being Freddie Spruell cuts.  Just because something is in print doesn't make it correct.  Use your ears.

John Tefteller has had this to say (earlier this month) about the Hattie Hart identification:

As far as Hattie Hyde, that apparently is a mistake and misunderstanding on my part. I ASSUMED that Hattie Hyde was Hattie Hart and that Will Shade etc. from the Memphis Jug Band was behind her. Other experts, whom I respect and trust, tell me that I am wrong. They say she is indeed Hattie Hyde and that the record was recorded in Dallas, not Memphis and that there is no concrete information as to who the back up musicians are. I really hate getting something like this wrong, and it is quite embarassing...

PS I think the reasoning behind those earlier Washboard Sam cuts being identified as Spruell ones were because he was the guitarist on the record. Why the guitarist & not the 'name' vocalist is credited on the CD is odd.
