Jinx !

The best part about packing up and moving is that you realize that you have a bunch of cds that aren’t even opened. This could also be the worst part – as it really exposes how deep my addiction goes. In a releated note Document Records is having a huge mid-summer cd sale with a bunch of titles from £2.99 – £5.99, that’s GBP so about 6 to 9 USD.

This cut from Ora Brown is from the Tiny Parham and the Blues Singers, Parham was a band leader but he also worked as a talent scout for Paramount Records and these singers are some of the ladies he was pitching to Paramount, who unfortunately never recorded a bunch of songs. I don’t know anything about Ora Brown – she recorded these two songs in 1927 with Will Ezell and this version of Jinx Blues might be my new favorite.
