Sorry about missing my posting duties yesterday and Monday, but I simply ran of of time, Monday's are going to be pretty tight for awhile, so I am going to start posting the Monday update on Sunday afternoon or evening.

Willie Reed is somewhat unknown as a solo artist, but he did work with Whistlin' Alex Moore as well as Texas Alexander. Reed is a good example of Texas blues, a very compact form of blues based centrally around solo artists. Reed's voice is much older and assured than many blues singers during the early 30s and he allows it to easily dominate the recording.
