BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 4/19/15
DR. CLAYTON’S BUDDY

This week on Blues Before Sunrise  we’ll listen to records by Dr. Clayton’s Buddy. Dr Clayton was a unique and popular Blues vocalist from the 1940s. His main claim to fame was that he used to employ a high pitch whoop and holler and would sing the final line of 12 bar Blues in falsetto – a technique adopted by none other than B.B. King. When Clayton died in 1947 the Bluebird Label brought Sunnyland Slim, who did a wicked Clayton imitation into the studios to record as Dr. Clayton’s Buddy. They were among Sunnyland’s earliest recordings. We’ll grab a handful of those sides on this week’s BBS – Please, join us!

Dr. Clayton’s Buddy – Only on BBS.
