Wow - but Bessie Smith spills fire and fury in Hateful Blues on Columbia Record 14023D. Talk about hymns of hate - Bessie sure is a him-hater on this record. The way she tells what she is going to do with her "butcher" will make trifling fellows catch express trains going at 60 miles an hour. The music is full of hate too. You can almost see hate drip from the piano keys. Every note is a half-note. No quarter for anyone - Chicago defender ad, July 1924

Appearing with Honeyboy Edwards
« on: July 08, 2007, 05:53:45 AM »
Hello folks, I wouldn't normally blow our own trumpet (or harmonica, come to that) but I thought I'd let people know that we (Lee Bates and Billy Newton) are appearing with the legendary David Honeyboy Edwards at the Cluny, Newcastle upon Tyne (U.K.) on August 16th. It's real honour for us to share the stage with this great man and if any of you can make it it's be good to see you, come and introduce yourself. (If not there then come and see us at Upton Blues Festival on July 21st!)

Hey GG - sorry won't make it to Honeyboy, but both Snakehips and I will be at Upton, so see you there...(Upton has fewer Beirut-type venues than Dundee - so why not persuade a  certain hotshot cousin to come to Upton too)?

It's a bit of a long drive from San Jose.   :D
Puttin' on my Carrhartts, I gotta work out in the field.
