Listen to Me and my Chauffeur Blues (well, 35 seconds of it)

Lizzie Douglas
Born 3rd. June 1897 - Algiers, Louisiana
Died 6th. August 1973 - Memphis, Tennessee

The only female among my selection and (surprise, surprise) a singer / guitarist and not a classic blues singer. Not that I don't like classic blues singers but this lady was something else. First came across her on the LP released in conjuction with the book "Screening the Blues" by Paul Oliver.
