The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 99
Today's mixed bag of music is the result of just some random thumbing through the database that I keep in an attempt to stay organized with my music collection. The strange thing is, that I often have the impression that getting organized is an awful way to forget what I have and random browsing helps me re-disovering what I have and seem to have lost from my memory.
The findings of today include Wee Bea Booze, of whom I found out that all biographies on her wrongly assumed that that was the stage name of Muriel Nichols. I found that on the web page of the Red Saunders Research Foundation, probably the best site on the Chicago music scene of the forties and fifties - and then Bea Booze never was connected to the Chicago scene. (I took the time to correct the Wikipedia page on Bea Booze her with that information).
And also a great blues from as far back as 1928 - that shows that "Race music" - African American music - always has been exciting and highly original.
