You Can’t Sleep In My Bed
Posted in 1920s,Female Blues,Honey on 07.27.06

Mary Dixon was a Texas blues singer who recorded 10 tracks in 1929, who should have been allowed to recorded dozens and dozens more. Dixon’s voice is a strong as any of the classic blues singers and her originality of voice and lyrics is only equaled by the larger talents. Her voice delivers these songs with such vigor it’s hard to believe that she didn’t become the next Sara Martin. This track “You Can’t Sleep In My Bed” has some scat singing at the beginning and settles into an aggressive piano driven piece as Dixon tells her man that he shouldn’t come home late, or really come home at all.

I love these old pieces, and their authenticity adds to the actual quality of the work in my opinion.
