Bessie Tucker

I've been listening to some Bessie Tucker recently. The female equivalent of Texas Alexander (only better). Apart from her amazing vocals I was really taken by her accompaniment, particularly the guitar which, according to BGR, is Jesse Thomas.

I've got a couple sides of her, but she's accompanied by piano on them. What are some of the songs she recorded with Jesse Thomas?

Old Black Mary, Mean Old Master, Mean Jackstropper plus others from memory, away from my books. The piano player is also superb.

To make it easier for folks: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Bessie+Tucker

Interesting voice. Apparently her songs mostly mention trains that serviced East Texas. Maybe Mack McCormick knew all about her?
