The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 175

Legends Mix

Out of today's playlist, I want to highlight a few women who did some great blues. You will get Dinah Washington with a great women's wartime blues, that was in the repertoire of many female blues singers these days. Like Etta Jones and Helen Humes, and both are featured with a great blues on today's playlist.

But also a wonderful blues of Victoria Spivey from back in 1926, and like we're used from her, the unusual melodies and her piano accompaniment stand for a spine-chilling result.
