Subject: RE: Talkin' To Myself: Blues Lyrics 1921-42 (M. Taft)
Thanks for finding that, Joe. I have now bookmarked the new location.
Nowadays, though, when you're looking for a blues song, it's often possible to find the original recording on Spotify. I'd prefer to listen to it and make my own transcription rather than trust the transcription I find in Taft's database, which contains many errors.
The database is still useful, though, if you don't know which song you're looking for, and you're just starting with a quote. It's also useful for finding a group of related songs which all contain some lines in common, even though they may have different titles.
