My Name Is Precious
Posted in Honey on 08.05.05

The Music Maker Relief Foundation was founded in 1993 by Tim Duffy as a way to help blues artists record and preform music and most importantly provide services to help improve these blues musicians quality of life through providing food and access to health care services. For the next few Friday I’ll be posting tracks from various Music Maker albums. You can buy these albums through Music Maker directly for 10 dollars each (as part of their summer sales event) and it all goes to a really great cause.

Precious Bryant
Today we are looking at the new Music Maker release “My Name Is Precious” by Precious Bryant. Bryant is a Georgia born blues singer who was first recorded by George Mitchell in 1967. Precious is an amazing guitar guitar player and has one of the sweetest voices I’ve ever heard. These recordings were done by Tim Duffy in the late 90s and while some of them feature Bryant playing with a small band the two tracks I’ve chose feature Precious solo. The first track “You Don’t Want Me No More” is a great variation on C.C. Rider while “Baby, Please Come Home To Me” is the traditional tune transformed into a wonderfully haunting blues number.

Sounds like “Baby, Please Come Home to Me” must have influenced Bonnie Raitt!!

I’m just finally catching up to your new domain name and hosting arrangement — glad to see HWYBSL is going strong.

But it doesn’t seem like your feeds are working on the new site; at least, the link on the home page comes up empty.

Thanks for the music

Your link to the Music Maker site put a serious dent in my productivity this week! (It will probably put a serious dent in my wallet, too.)
