T For Texas Alexander
Posted in Honey on 09.02.04

Tomorrow I have a special guest submitted batch of blues mp3s to share. They are both really fantastic, so be sure to check back sometime over the long Labor Day weekend.

As the subject implies, today I have posted a track from Texas Alexander called “St.Louis Fair Blues.” Like his namesake, Texas Alexander was born near part of the Brazos River that runs through most of Texas. Alexander is unusual because he does not play any instruments on his recordings. Alexander’s voice fortunally is up to the task and he recruited the best session players like Lonnie Johnson, Clarence Williams and later Lighting Hopkins to accompany his wonderfully broken voice.
