Before I Faint
Posted in Honey on 07.21.05

I can’t wait until I get my new AC unit on Friday, These fans just aren’t cutting it anymore. How is everyone liking the Lightnin’ Hopkins Videos?

Another Blues Women request – Margaret Carter, an obscure blues singer who only recorded two sides in 1926. Carter sounds a lot like Bessie Smith and is almost as talented. These two songs show both skill in interpretations of blues standards as well as a good original song. She’s also back by a stellar band that includes both Charlie Irvis and Buddy Christian. It’s a shame she didn’t record more songs, she has a lot of fun with both of these tracks and shows that she did have the talent to make it in the blues world if everything would have worked out.

Loved this! Looking up Margaret Carter online, one source says that she also recorded as Margaret Johnson. Under that name, she recorded some tracks with the Clarence Williams Blue Five, Louis Armstrong on cornet, in late November 1924:

Margaret Johnson
Papa, Mama’s All Alone Blues
Changeable Daddy of Mine

Affinity AFS 1018
(Margaret Johnson and Sippie Wallace tracks)

Now I have something new to look for!

Thanks again.

Thanks for me, too. Very funny lyrics ..and the voice is so clear.
What happened to “Harry’s Blues On Line” the lyrics sites?
Can you recommend some good books about the prewar blues lyrics and the use of the “words”?
Really enjoy this website.
