Two Years
Posted in 1930s,Country Blues,Honey on 05.23.06

Honey turned two (14 in dog years) yesterday and I was so busy getting ready for the party today that i forgot to post! I’m working on getting all the bonus stuff backup and running, but dreamhost isn’t letting me configure that directory like I want it to be so I’m looking into other ways of allowing people to access that information.

More songs by request today – King Solomon Hill’s My Buddy Blind Papa Lemon/Times Done Got Hard is one of the rarest 78s with only one known copy in existence. Luckily the good fellows at Yazoo got the owner of the record to allow them to record both sides and spread the two songs out across their sprawling collection of rural southern music compilations “Times Ain’t Like They Used To Be.” Both songs are excellent country blues recorded by Paramount in 1932.
