Loud And Wrong
Posted in 1920s,Female Blues,Honey on 10.10.06

Betty Gray recorded only two songs in late 1927 (and possibly two more as Kitty Waters later in the year) which is a shame, because despite her awful phrasing on the refrain on this track she shows a lot of promise and certainly deserved a few more trips to the recording studio, maybe with some better backing musicians. This track Loud and Wrong is a great murder ballad about a jealous husband. The way she sings “…baseball…bat” makes me extremely giddy.

“Loud and Wrong” is a great title – think O might adopt it as my personal motto…
