The Spell of the Blues

11 05 2011

The Spell of the Blues—A. Johnston/D. Dreyer/H. Ruby, 1928 (Recorded May 11, 2011) Here’s another crusty old song, this one about the Blues, as interpreted by a trio of Tin Pan Alley song writing stalwarts. Again, learned from a Bing Crosby recording, one of his sessions with Guy Lombardo, I think.

I used a harmonica on this tune at the very end. It’s a diatonic “C” harp, which is only partly useful for the key of “F.” Plus, I am not the world’s best harmonica player, correct key or no.
