Sawmill Gravy Blues - Elmore James
Blues Shack - The legends
Mamie Smith (née Robinson; May 26, 1891 – September 16, 1946) was a vaudeville singer, dancer, pianist, and actress. As a vaudeville singer she performed in various styles, including jazz and blues. In 1920, she entered blues history as the first African-American artist to make vocal blues recordings. When she was around 10 years old, she found work touring with a white act, the Four Dancing Mitchells.  As a teenager, she danced in Salem Tutt Whitney's Smart Set.  In 1913, she left the Tutt Brothers to sing in clubs in Harlem and married William "Smitty" Smit - The rest is history.
Meet the Doc & Papa Dee
PD & The DocThe Doc and I thought to ourselves. As the song goes:  ‘Seemed like a good idea at the time’ and you know what... it was!
With no plans to retire, unless the electricity runs out and we go back to gas and candles, we'll keep listening to and producing 'Backtracking' and 'Listen to the Blues Talking' with you, our very good friends right around the world.
We're two, a little long in the tooth, Blues rockers who plan to keep rockin’ for a very long time yet .... The word is, you may be sure, the Blues will keep talking' to us, and you.
The Gospel Blues Train
Gospel blues are a form of blues-based gospel music that has been around since the inception of blues music. It combines evangelistic lyrics with blues instrumentation, often with a blues guitar accompaniment. Possibly fair to say, led by The Reverend Gary Davis. Listen out for the 'Gospel Blues' Track' each week on the 'Backtracking' production.
