    Where did it all begin, well way before 1920, but this tune here gets credit as being the first blues on record. Obviously they were singing them blues all over the south long before 1920,, but when it came to blues on a record.......






    Here's a rarity....






    Etta James doing her version of Crawling King Snake


    Tom Waits

      Can't talk them blues and not mention the Mississippi Delta, here is the very first record from the Mississippi Delta, 1926 and Freddie Spruell.




      That is Ishman Bracey another Delta legend

            Speaking of Texas bluesmen...





            Staying in Texas, well actually he was born in Louisiana but grew up in Texas. But, was discovered in the Angola Prison back in Louisiana.

            Don't get any bigger than Lead Belly





            Actually sang his way out of prison, hard to believe but true,

            Henry Thomas another Texan might be the oldest bluesman on record being born in the 1870's, story goes he was a wandering hobo, who played on street corners for his $$$$$$. That is how he got a chance to record.
