    That one is so dirty I'm surprised the Label didn't censor it!
    Nothing matters much and most things don't matter at all.

    Good one Worf.

    Here's Amos's original version from 1948. Even more laid back....

    Otis's tune is kinda dirty but nothing on the absolute classic... "The Ballad of Butcher Pete". My Aunt Marie in Brooklyn had what we called "Party Records" back in the day. Mostly these were comedy records by Redd Foxx and Mom's Mabely but this is one they wouldn't let us kids hear either and if we did we didn't understand half of what they were speaking about. Between this record and the stuff by "Bullmoose" Jackson my young brain was fried.

    What a nasty, nasty record.....

    These party records have a long history.

    Look up some of the stuff waxed by Georgia Tom and Tampa Red back in the 'Twenties.




    Then there was Lil Johnson nearly a decade later:


    It all makes Dwight Fisk seem terribly, terribly affected, doesn't it?

    Hi HD. I guess every thread goes off topic once in a while!!

    Getting back on topic, but staying with the recent "risque" theme, here's Bullmoose Jackson from 1952, with "Big 10 Inch Record"....

    And here, from 1951, is Fluffy Hunter, aided by Jessie Powell, doing "Walkin Blues"...

    Sorry, wrong war.

    I don't see a hard and fast divide, save for perhaps recording quality., and was hoping to perhaps bring up something unfamiliar rather than the same old thing. Besides which, I do assume that you knew that "Georgia Tom" is none other than Thomas Dorsey, the man who largely created the modern gospel music which transmuted into Soul.

    There is always Jack McVea and his All Stars, a very fine though sadly forgotten jump blues band. When I come across one of this bands discs (usually on Black & White, occasionally on Exclusive) I always save it from the discard pile, if the record is not too badly worn.



    He also occasionally featured the excellent Wynonie Harris, as in "Rock Mr. Blues":



    King down in Cincy waxed some interesting stuff, including this Roy Brown platter form 1950 or thereabouts;
