Blue Drag

Postby radiotone » Thu Mar 02, 2006 4:45 am

Anyone ever listened to non-Django (or non-Gyspy Jazz) versions of Blue Drag? There are versions by the Washboard Rhythm Kings, the Original Yellow Jackets, Earl Hines, and Freddy Taylor.

I'm not ever sure if the tune is by Josef Myrow, Fletcher Allen (who may have just popularized it) or both of them.

An Earl Hines version can be sampled here:

and a Freddy Taylor version (with lyrics!) can be found here:
