Press My Button, Ring My Bell
Posted in 1930s,Female Blues,Honey on 01.03.07

Happy New Year, blues seekers.  I have lots of back burner projects I’m going really try finally get out of the door this year, such as Honey’s Intro to Blues that’s been half written for like 6 months now. This May will be Honey’s fourth year as the premier pre-war blues mp3 blog, and hopefully our best year yet.

To start off the year I picked Lil’ Johnson’s raunchy classic “Press My Button, Ring My Bell” one of her best dirty blues songs – and while the subject matter is pretty obvious it is still one of the better written songs she preformed.  She is backed on piano by the wonderful Black Bob which also help to raise this performance above normal dirty blues dreck.

Sorry, but I hate 16:9 formats and 99.9% of the Videos are 4:3. In Cinemas it makes Sense, but at home ??? or on a Laptop ?????? Whats next? 1000:5 ? Its as sucspiious as the the 15 blades shaver!!! Please let us choice our format ourselfes. I even draw my paintings in 4:3. I can not longer take these ugly black bars…
