Tape Echo was invented about TEN years AFTER this was recorded,but, strangely here it is all over this track.
Early reissues of older tracks often feature such " improvements".
Part of the so called secret to "Fake Stereo" as invented by RCA and Capitol's "Duophonic" to "improve" earlier mono-only product was to add electronic reverb to a second mono track with slightly different EQ to simulate stereo separation.
Monophonic styli of the time could not safely play early stereo discs as the mono needle tips in use were too large in diameter for the tighter stereo grooves and the discrete information on each side of the groove walls.
These enhancement processes kept older releases marketable and permitted non stereo owners to vicariously participate in something approximating " The Joys of Stereo Sound " at about a dollar less per album than their "hi-toned" friends paid for stereo releases.
By the later sixties, the industry purged mono versions of stereo album releases as entry price points to stereo equipment dropped.
Few people now remember that The Beatles "Sgt.Pepper," in its first pressings in 1967 was available in Stereo OR MONO.
With the fiftieth anniversary of its release, it would now be almost unthinkable that a landmark state of the art recording would have been available in two sonically different versions.
The RCA "Electronically Enhanced" (fake) Stereo process remained available across the industry until almost the end of vinyl formats in the late eighties.
Pre war records rarely if ever had any reverberant ambiance, and if they did, it was a natural quality of the room the recording was made in.
Only the biggest acts recording for the "Majors", RCA,Columbia,Decca, would have had any access to facilities which may have had natural reverb, much less any electronic enhancement whatsoever.
To have imposed anything but the most basic production processes on a "Blues", "Race",C&W, early "R&R" or any non- "Pop" release prior to the mid 1950's would have been anathema to the record business, at least at the major label level.
Even the " fade out", ubiquitous now in recordings could not be done ELECTRONICALLY until 1947.
Prior to that time, any type of volume reduction had to be physically created by an instrument or vocalist, either dynamically or by altering placement relative to the microphone.
The best of contemporary reissue projects routinely attempt to present vintage material as close as possible to the sound of the original masters.
The box sets of Robert Johnson and that of Charlie Christian some years back are two notable successes in undoing " improvements" common to earlier reissues of the respective materials such as we hear in this altered version.
With this obviously enhanced recording, in the words of Cab Calloway- "Poor Min, Poor Min, Poor Min..."
But, IF by some chance Ms. Minnie recorded this through the sound system at Yankee Stadium as some perverse audio ambiance tribute to the sonic,uh,charms of Lou Gehrig's "farewell" speech or as a glimpse into a young Sam Phillips' or Les Paul's future as masters of tape echo/"slapback", however utterly improbable that would be, then, I humbly stand corrected.

@Matthew Yeager The earliest Broonzy recording that I think sounds a lot like rock and roll (but not like rock and roll as such) is "You Do Me Any Old Way" from 1937.

There are two different takes of "I'm Gonna Pull My Hair," one sounds more like rock and roll than the other, and the one that sounds more like it is on the relevant Cats and the Fiddle CD on the Dee-Jay Jamboree label.

"Hastings St." by Charlie Spand sounds more like rock and roll than anything else I can think of from 1929. Albert Ammons and Les Brown both recorded blues with backbeat in the '30s.

There's a Rhythmakers recording from 1932 with Pee Wee Russell on tenor, I forget which title, that sounds as much like R&B/rock and roll with tenor as anything I've heard from 1932.

Some late '20s boogie piano sounds quite a bit like rock and roll, but only inasmuch as rock and roll piano often sounded quite a lot like late '20s boogie piano (compared to e.g. rock and roll guitar which didn't sound much like '20s guitar by anyone). The pianists who played on rock and roll were influenced by the likes of Pete Johnson, who was well-known in the late '40s, learned to play boogie piano in the '20s, and hadn't changed his style much.

"Opus Two" by Buddy Johnson had a huge rock-and-roll-like backbeat considering when it was recorded (1945).

Some people listen to any hip uptempo blues from the likes of Charlie Patton or Roosevelt Graves and claim that it sounds similar to rock and roll, not understanding that uptempo blues were around in the '10s, '20s, '30s,  and '40s, and rock and roll was a very particular type of uptempo blues invented in 1946 or 1947. Rock and roll beginning had zero to do with blues "getting faster" as some people like to assume; "Joe Turner Blues" by Wilbur Sweatman in the 1910s, "Milton's Boogie" by Roy Milton in the mid-'40s, etc. etc. were fast and weren't rock and roll.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the blues. Rock and roll sounds like attempted rape compared to this beauty . . .

Nothing but the blues here. Rock n’ roll is on up the road a piece.

RiRi Hope

Rock came from the blues and Rock is just a name that was called by a disc jockey.. please Race music made rock n roll what it was even more so than country

House at Pooh Corner with Jim Hogue

Great postings. Finally people can see the slow morphing of 12 bar blues into rock-n-roll.
