He’s A Good Meat Cutter
Posted in 1930s,Female Blues,Honey on 07.06.06

Issie Ringgold is a mostly unknown blues singer, her sister Muriel was a somewhat popular Broadway singer, but Issie didn’t see any of that success as she only recorded a couple of songs in early 1930. This song, He’s A Good Meat Cutter, is a solid, if uninspired blues side the major draw I have to the song is that I’m in total love with Issie’s voice, it has a bit of high class showtime in it, a little bit of vaudeville and it sounds just perfect.

For some reason I want that vocal melody to be a bit different–for it to go a little higher, go a little lower, snap a little more–but you’re right, she does have a good voice. And I like the horns and piano.

Is this the most outrageous sexual metaphor in the blues? It’s got to be close.
