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

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.
