Outdoor Blues

Peter Patnaik at Honey Where You Been So Long tells us: "Memphis Minnie started to play guitar as a child and was almost immedently started to play parties. She would later run away to Memphis and start her recording career. Mostly known for being one of the few female blues artists (though this is somewhat misleading) and a great guitar player, Minnie played with several different types of bands both backing and leading. This track "Outdoor Blues" is a personal track, probably recollecting her time playing for tips on Beale St. shows off her considerable guitar skill, and her powerful and wonderful voice."
