*drum roll*

1. Precious Bryant – You Don’t Want Me No More
2. Ozella Jones – I Been A Bad Bad Girl Prisoner Blues
3. Bumble Bee Slim – If Blues Was Whiskey
4. Precious Bryant – Baby, Please Come Home To Me
5. Trixie Smith – You Gotta Beat Me To Keep Me
6.Etta Baker and Cora Phillips – Going Down The Road Feeling Bad
7.Frank Stokes – Chicken You Can Roost Behind The Moon
8.Peetie Wheatstraw – No Good Woman (Fighting Blues)
9. Etta Baker and Cora Phillips – Broken Hearted Blues
10.Mamie Smith – The Road Is Rocky

a couple of surprises on the the list. the Skip James and Son House tracks, while beening download more than anything I’ve ever posted in the first week they were up, died of fairly quickly – they swept up the 11-15 ranks. The Music Maker Foundation recordings did really well which puts a smile on my face.
