Family Skeleton Blues

The blues “line” on Kitty Brown is that she was an average singer, that was constantly overshadowed by her backing bands. And I mean some of that is true, she’s not a great singer, but she’s good enough to keep up with her spectacular band. This song is so so good, so very good in fact that I don’t even care that she didn’t do anything close to this with her other dozen songs, this is what I’ll remember Kitty Brown for. Of course I have this failure to judge any slow dirge like blues song, especially ones about family gossip, with any sort of objective merit.
