Wicked Treatin’ Blues

I haven’t really posted any real down blues songs recently, blame the weather I guess. But this side from Slim Burton and Eddie Mapp, culled from the wonderful Georgia Blues 1928-33 disc from Document is as blue as it gets. A gut wrenching harmonica and vocal duet by these two country blues masters is slow and painful – and might be the song that Lonnie Johnson would sing while walking through Death Valley.

That sounds Brilliant! is the song to a Blind lemon tune as it sounds familiar? I think its Jack O’Dimmonds that comes to mind. I’ve not heard much pre-war blues this early with such a presence of the Harmonica.
