In December 2017 Samantha Fish ripped into the classic Crow Jane. “Its roots lay in the Piedmont region of Virginia and North and South Carolina. Rev. Gary Davis was known to perform it during the 1920’s, and the first recording was made in 1927 by guitarist Julius Daniels.”
Not sure what Crow Jane did to deserve being killed.
Marie, The Four Tunes (1953)
The Four Tunes originated from The Brown Dots, a quartet started in New York City by Ivory “Deek” Watson after he split from the Ink Spots in late 1944. Marie was written by Irving Berlin and first recorded by Nat Shilkret & the RCA Victor Orchestra (as The Troubadors) in 1928.
