Thread Name: Talking blues and spoken country songs?
Subject: RE: Talking blues and spoken country songs?
I just ran across an example of talking blues that was new to me: A POLITICIAN'S DOG, written by Billy Ed Wheeler, and originally recorded by Uncle Jud Crowfield and the New Kentucky Travelers in 1965. It's about LBJ and his beagles Him and Her. I posted the lyrics in the thread called "Songs about Dogs." You can hear the original recording on YouTube, but I actually prefer a performance by Layne Brooks.
