The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 198

Legends Mix

In today's show, I will start with a great and very early blues of Helen Humes. Those old recordings of here are pretty much forgotten, she did them in her teenage years in 1927. From there I chronologically work up my mixed bag of tunes to the mid-fifties, with a whole new generation of young kids, the generation that not just witnessed, they were part of Rock 'n Roll.
