elizabeth childers

first she learned to play the banjo.. by 13 she had run off from her mother and father, hitched all the way to memphis where she stayed and became the undisputed queen of the blues. mother of the blues in my opinion. not only could she beat out tampa and big bill, but she could also beat up any man with whatever she found handy if they set her off. memphis minnie recorded from the 20s to the 50s... thats impressive.

SonnyMcGhee

This is a great recording by a great artist. In a contest she supposedly beat out Big Bill Broonzy and Tampa Red. Now that would of been something to see

slideharp1

Love this - I don't know which of her husbands is on the other guitar - many men tried, many men died. Great singer, great blues.

lucripet

Never heard of Minnie. Wow! Now I have and being redundant....WOW! Thanks for this.

SonnyMcGhee

@yefjj Very true

Trevor McKenna

But there ain't nothin' in ramblin' better just stayin' around.

Hermesacat

If I'm hearing the lines right, this is a rather non-subtle sexual reference:
"I fall down on my knees
When the cock begin to rise
In  my little old cabin
Down by the riverside"
-And Minnie's song "I'm Gonna Bake My Biscuit" is obviously about masturbation.
Robert Johnson gets lauded today as a stand-out 1930s blues guy, but Johnson was not a popular blues artist during his life. He had one minor hit. Minnie was much more popular at the time. Johnson was a hot player, but I'll take Minnie's
singing any day over Robert's. And she was no slouch as a player (or writer), It was actually Mazzy Star's two covers  of Minnnie's songs ("...Biscuit," & "I'm Sailin' ") that made me rediscover Minnie a few years back, & seek out her recordings!

YEFJJ

@Hermesacat it pays to listen......Minnie had a long career, played and recorded with other great musicians....Robert didn't have a career, recorded solo, died at 27 years old before painting his masterpiece.
