Peetie Wheatstraw is kind of a forgotten figure these days, but he was actually a contemporary of Robert Johnson, and probably about as popular at the time. He was an excellent guitarist and piano player, and sang in a distinctive drawl. Here's one of his songs with an unusual lyric which appealed to me. Guitar is my Matsumoko factory Satellite solid body.. it was meant to be just a guide guitar but it's so funky it had to stay! Crazy with the blues.
As I said there'll be a collection album along soon so if you're planning to download or get an Amazon On Demand CD you might want to wait. If you're listening on Spotify or Apple .. enjoy! Full info on the forthcoming album here Be back soon.
