Lizzie Miles was a New Orleans Singer who had a wide range of singing styles though I think she was only able to pull off jazz and blues – this track in particular is a fantastic blues performance and really shows why she was one of the biggest blues star of her time. She Is backed by Jelly Roll Morton on piano, and what a wonderful piano track this is – he almost steals the show from Miles who is at her somber and plaintive best.

shucks, FINALLY I find some posted Gladys Bently/Lizzie Miles and Luella Miller and not one track features Teddy Bunn /Eddie Lang or Lonnie Johnson on guitar!
