The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 120

Legends Mix

Today's playlist features a few mid- to late fifties tunes and even a real impressive song from 1960. I don't play music that "young" that often, and today I'll explain to you why - there's more to it than that I'm just bothering you with my personal taste.

And to compensate today's oldest blues is from the roaring twenties, when no-one ever thought the deepest and longest depression in American history was about to come. It's a blues on the legendary Paramount label of the great Ida Cox.
