If Blues Was Whiskey
Posted in Honey on 08.08.05

The wonderful Keep The Coffee Coming posted one of my favorite Woody Guthrie songs “Why Oh Why” this morning – check it out. I might be alone on this, but I might like Guthrie’s silly and whimsical songs more than his his other work – he has such a great way with words and themes.

Bumble Bee Slim (Amos Easton) will forever been know as a poor man’s Leory Carr and to some extent that’s a shame because Slim was a much better lyricist than Carr though he was only a blues singer and did not play any instruments. Bumble Bee Slim does sound a lot like Carr, but has a much greater range of emotions than Carr’s perpetual sadness. This track “If Blues was Whiskey” is a great example of the lyrical ability of Slim and he is also backed by a really great band featuring Charlie McCoy on guitar and Jimmie Gordan on piano.
