He would sit all night long feeling bad and just continue singing and playing, improvising one song after another, and tears would stream from his eyes. And he'd get other people crying. Then, sometimes, he would be on another kick, you know . . . love. He'd just love women. Listening to him he'd make you think you were, well . . . this can't be written down, but you know what I mean. That is, you couldn't understand what the hell he was singing, but you didn't have to - Blind Lemon Jefferson, remembered by Josh White

Hi all,
I recently found Lovie Austin accompanying Ida Cox on "Chattanooga Blues".  I wondered if folks knew other artists that she accompanied, or where she was from.  I'd appreciate any information.
All best,
Johnm

I know Johnny Dodds recorded with her on at least a few sides.

In 1923, Lovie Austin decided to make Chicago her home, and she lived and worked there for the rest of her life. She was often seen racing around town in her Stutz Bearcat with leopard skin upholstery, dressed to the teeth.
