Feat. "Scrapper" Blackwell


Recorded in Richmond, Indiana on February 5th 1930 featuring "Georgia" Tom Dorsey piano, whistling, & vocals,
accompanied by "Scrapper" Blackwell guitar.

*"Maybe It's The Blues" was written by Thomas A. Dorsey.

Francis "Scrapper" Blackwell, a guitarist popular for his spectacular duet appearances on record with celebrated blues pianist and composer Leroy Carr, also proves himself to be a perfect match for "Georgia" Tom Dorsey on this original Hokum number.

Born, Francis Hillman Blackwell he would be best known for his partnership with Leroy Carr from the late 1920's lasting until Carr's untimely death from nephritis in 1935. A formidable blues singer in his own right, Blackwell was equally well versed in both the Chicago and Piedmont blues guitar styles.
