Seeking for LEADBELLY discography
Fri Feb 9 10:25:33 EST 1996
Paris, France le 9 fev 96...Bonjour a tous !
I just suscribe at the Blues list yesterday
so I'm new in the club...and today yet I need some help.
I need some things about dates of recordings by LEADBELLY.
Unfortunately I have not ( not yet) the books made by
GODRICH & DIXON and LEADBITTER & SLAVEN .
Maybe for sure all the available Discography will be good
but maybe it will be too much time to write !!! But if you want do it
it's allright. So I will need specially these titles :
from LP RCA victor (singing and guitar) :
GOOD MORNING BLUES
from LP FOLKWAYS M 52488 (french issue).
ON MONDAY(with harp : maybe Sonny Terry)
CORN BREAD ROUGH: he's playing concertina superbe !
I SHALL BE FREE with Cisco Houston Woody Guthrie and Sonny Terry
from LP FOLKWAYS M 52014 (french issue)
LAURA (he's playing concertina too )
LEAVING BLUES ( 2 versions )
GOOD NIGHT IRENE (with harp : maybe Sonny Terry)
PIGMEAT (with other guitar)
BORROW LOVE AND GO
Other title which appears on AIM record (austria)
ON A MONDAY (how many versions does exist of it)
DEFENSE BLUES (encore!)
On Collectables the Stinson:
SKIP TO MY LOU &IT'S ALMOST DAY (or DONE?)
LITTLE SALLY WALKER
with Cisco Houston Woody Guthrie and a banjo (who's playing)
TAKE THIS HAMMER
with Josh WHITE : I've got A pretty flower
and encore : CORN BREAD ROUGH
So it will be kind to give me dates (at least only year can be enought) with
other musicians if possible . I wonder when Leadbelly did recorded with
Cisco Houston Woody Guthrie and Sonny Terry . Was it during War World 2
or after ?
About movies . I heard about a movie made by Gordon Sparks (he maid "Shaft")
Is that easy to find that movie ( I think it never went to France !);
Any info about it will be kind. Did anybody see it ? date is maybe 76 or 77.
To finish I'm looking too the name of the director of a short movie
with Big Bill Broonzy made in the 50's in Europe (maybe Paris or Brussels)
where you can see Big Bill play in a club "hey hey baby" and other tunes...
A saw it a long time ago in Paris . It's black and with movie the title may
be "Big Bill Blues" and does Yannick Bruynoghe ( the men who wrote
Big Bill story) work on it ?
The reason of it it's because I'm working on french realese
Leadbelly and Big Bill for a new blues collection.
Merci a tous, a bientot? thanks.
