PLAYLIST – ‘Songs of Protest: Blues, Booze & Broads’


Women In Blues – PLAYLIST 21st NOVEMBER, 2013

Continuing on our journey of discovery …

Showcasing more ‘Original Blues Women’ of the 1920’s through to their contemporary counterparts ..













Clara Smith / Ain’t Got Nobody to Grind my Coffee / Released in 1928 on Columbia.  Appears on the album Complete Recorded Works, Vol. 5 (1927-1929).

My daddy used to love me pretty, I’ll confess;
Belive me, he could do it different from the rest!
Ain’t got nobody who could put me to a test,
And do my grinding for me, I say,
And do my grinding for me!


Hattie Hudson / Dog Gone My Good Luck Soul / Great tune by Hattie some time around the 1930s

I got three good mens, but it’s two more in my way,
dog gone my good luck soul,
Hey, two more in my way;
And if this good luck don’t leave me, I’ll love myself away.

Little appears to be known about Hattie Hudson. She recorded both Doggone My Good Luck Soul and Black Hand Blues for Columbia, on December the 6th 1927.  But these are her only recordings.

However, it has been suggested that she might be Hattie Burleson recording under a pseudonym (perhaps for copyright reasons).  Hattie Burleson recorded a total of seven tracks, 4 for Brunswick and 3 for Paramount, in 1928 & 1930 respectively.

It should be noted that Doggone My Good Luck Soul is “the answer to” Blind Lemon Jefferson’s Bad Luck Blues of 1926.


Lizzie Miles / My Man O’War / Released in 1930 on Victor

Georgia White / I’ll Keep Sittin’ On It (If I Can’t Sell It) / From the album ‘The Copulatin’ Blues Volume 1′ – Recorded In Chicago May 12, 1936.
