Washed Me Clean
Posted in Gospel,Honey,Meta,Texas Blues on 01.17.07

We’ve been working hard on a new revision for the website, I think it will be ready by next month – but I’m most excited about our new logo which looks pretty awesome:

Arizona Dranes (Drane) was a Texas gospel singer who recorded a couple dozen tracks during the 20s, and mixed scared singing and up and coming Texas blues sounds like barrelhouse piano to make up her unique sounds. This sound is so incredibly fresh and exciting today – Dranes leads the chorus while playing piano in a style that would never be aloud in any church of the time and predicts Ray Charles’ blend of gospel and soul by some thirty years. I believe her complete works are out of print now – so if interest is high I’ll post the rest of her songs this week.

Arizona Dranes!! Woo! I have one track on an old C90 and am itching as this downloads.

Thank You ;~)

Great logo, and great track. Drane’s “He Is My Story” is worth chasing down… one of my favourite prewar gospel recordings. There’s a picture of her here.

Having just finished a remodel of my own, I wish you luck. If the new logo is any indication, the new design should be great.

Amazing track — the tempo from the piano break through the end is mind-blowing. -pb

Really nice logo, which reminds me that one day I’ve really gotta spruce up my site. And please bring on more Arizona Dranes–the only thing I’d heard by her is the mighty “It’s All Right Now.”

Great logo! Did you design that yourself? The image is good and the typography is fantastic. I look forward to seeing you new design!

Lord how did I ever live without that song for so long? Thanks!

The logo looks great. It would also look good with a spindle hole in the middle like an old 78 label.

This is fantastic, I love this style so much and its a perfect song to use for an example in my folk music class!

I don’t think this sounds weird at all– in fact quite delicious! Biscuits are just…oh lord…so good! Especially with honey! There’s a place just around the corner from our house that sells these delectable biscuits, totally saturated in honey it just melts away in your mouth. It’s really more like a dessert as sweet as it is but it pairs perfectly with their fried chicken and fried corn on the cob(!!).
