Stormy Weather, The Spaniels (1958) Pookie Hudson & The Hudsonaires formed in 1952 at Roosevelt High School, Gary, Indiana. The following year they scored a top 10 hit with  Baby It’s You. as the Spaniels. Two years later they recorded their classic Good Night  Sweetheart, Goodnight and became one of the most successful R&B groups of their time.

Sam Chatmon (1897-1983) sang his version of a classic cheatin’ song in 1978. Apparently the vid was filmed by Alan Lomax.


The origin of the song “Make Me A Pallet On The Floor” is fuzzy and dates to the 1800s. It appeared in sheet music in 1908 in “Blind Boone’s Southern Rag Medley No. One: Strains from the Alleys.

Now check out John William Blind Boone‘s amazing story…


Magic Slim, aka Morris Holt (1937-2013). Nice Chicago blues [via].

Magic Slim was forced to give up playing the piano when he lost his little finger in a cotton gin mishap. He first came to Chicago in 1955 with his friend and mentor Magic Sam. The elder (by six months) Magic (Sam) let the younger Magic (Slim) play bass with his band and gave him his nickname.


Have a great weekend folks. Be back here tomorrow for more stuff.
