Wanna Go Home
Posted in 1920s,Female Blues,Honey on 04.05.06

I’m doing a little experimenting with categories. The odds of going back through the last year and adding the proper tags it for all the past posts is pretty slim, but if any adventurous Honey reader has some time on their hands I’ll open my home for you to do so, though I’m not holding my breath.

I’ve posted about Clara Smith a other times, but it has been almost a year now, so I figure she’s due again. This track recorded in 1929, features Smith at her most broken, backed by just a cello and reed organ. One of the best moanin’ blues tracks I’ve heard.

Afraid the link is still busted. Only a few bars download.

I hope you repost the song. I can only hear the intro, but it sounds beautiful.

Congratulations on a top site.
