The new server is not ready yet, hopefully tomorrow, but I'm going to update today anyway, and hope that some people can grab the files. In other computer news I'm now running Ubuntu as my linux distro which sadly forces me(for now) to use GNOME. This track was ripped with a different program than what I have been using before so let me know if it sounds awful or anything.



Bumble Bee Slim's music has a very interesting style. Slim was born in Georgia and grew up playing blues in the Piedmont Blues style of Blind Boy Fuller, Pink Anderson and others. He later moved to Chicago where he started to play and record with Chicago blues players including Leory Carr and Scrapper Blackwell. The mix of Chicago Blues and Piedmont Blues is real wonderful, on this track "Feather Bed" Slim sounds a lot like Lonnie Johnson with the opening lines "If you want to be happy mama, come back home with me," the piano is clearly the focus of this track, but instead of following standard Chicago Blues patterns it sounds more like a Piedmont Blues guitar, a quality that's further examined as the guitar work by Slim repeats the piano's main themes.

Sounds to me as though Lightnin Hopkins may have borrowed the melody of this song (with a faster tempo) for his own "Big Mama Jump" in 1947.12/17/2005 08:51:04 PM|||musiclover987123|||Hello peter p naik !
