Posted in Honey on 09.07.05

From 9-11 p.m i’ll be spinning the best pre-war blues and gospel has to offer. It is all streaming live at wuag.net. I missed my last show because of some car issues, but the other two shows this year have both been really solid.

Elzadie Robinson has had one previous mention on Honey in regards to a Christmas flavored blues song, this time we are looking at one of her best songs. And one that features some great piano work by the amazing Will Ezell. Going South, recorded in late 1928 at the second to last session Robinson would recorded at, reminds me a lot of Lonnie Johnson’s Southland Is All Right With Me. Both songs features people escaping the North (and trifling’ women and men) for the comforts of the South.
