Let’s Explore The Blues – Bo Carter
Bo Carter was born in 1892 and passed on in 1964. He was first known as a member of the Mississippi Sheiks with his brothers, and ended up as a very successful solo artist. His playlist was, simply, bawdy. Some of the songs. “Please Warm My Wiener”, “My Pencil Won’t Write No More” and “Banana In Your Fruit Basket”. Classic names for any song. He is also responsible for the first recording of “Corrine. Corrina” so he was not just a vaudeville sideshow. He recorded 110 sides in the 1930’s, making him both prolific and important. In fact, some say he was the most important artist of the era. His guitar playing still has influence on the stars of today. Enough of the man, let’s dig into the music.
Lets begin with bawdy songs.
