GUEST,Lionel Lyr Add: Feel So Good (Big Bill Broonzy) (10) RE: Broonzy: Feel So Good 28 Jan 03

Mmmm... well, if you were a black, blues singing ex-sharecropper from Mississippi living in Chicago in the 1930s you might pronounce the word "Gordons" as "Gardens", Tampa Red made a blues recording in 1928 or 1929 titled "Good Gordon Gin." Maybe Tampa "mispronounces" the word or maybe he or his record company mis-spelt it, when they should have put "Good Garden Gin" instead. What do you think? And in Lonnie Johnson's recording of "Tin Can Alley Blues" does old Lonnie sing about "Buckhead gin" or is it "Butthead gin" ?
And anyway does it matter? It is'nt as if it were fucking Shakespeare or John Donne we are talking about here.
