Blind lemon jefferson and ed bell the male blues vol 7


King is a very big man – somewhere north of 20st. Sixty-some years ago, when he was a young greenhorn, up from the plantation, his second cousin, the bluesman Bukka White, gave him some sound advice: 'If you want to be a good blues singer, people are going to be down on you, so dress like you’re going to the bank to borrow money.’ King has always taken the words to heart, but now he dresses like he owns the bank: an immaculate tuxedo, bow tie fastened tightly at his neck, black patent shoes, those diamond rings.

"We have all heard expressions of people 'singing in the rain' or 'laughing in the face of adversity,' but we never saw such a good example of it, until we came upon the history of Blind Blake. Born in Jacksonville, in sunny Florida, he seemed to absorb some of the sunny atmosphere--disregarding the fact that nature had cruelly denied him a vision of outer things. He could not see the things that others saw--but he had a better gift. A gift of an inner vision, that allowed him to see things more beautiful. The pictures that he alone could see made him long to express them in some way--so he turned to music. He studied long and earnestly--listening to talented pianists and guitar players, and began to gradually draw out harmonious tunes to fit every mood. Now that he is recording exclusively for Paramount, the public has the benefit of his talent, and agrees, as one body, that he has an unexplainable gift of making one laugh or cry as he feels, and sweet chords and tones that come from his talking guitar express a feeling of his mood."
