CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

My Tweet Twaat Twaat - The Za Zu Girl (Elton Spivey Harris)

Elton Island Spivey was born in Galveston, TX. on August 12, 1900. She was the elder sister of Victoria Spivey and also the sister of Addie "Sweet Pease" Spivey . Victoria and Addie both had lucrative recording careers, but Elton only had one recording session in 1937. Four songs were issued that gave her one 78 RPM record to her credit. This song was one of the cuts that wasn't issued, and due to to the lyrical content, you don't really have to wonder why. She had been a stage singer just like her sisters, but she retired from the music scene after this session. She moved to Detroit, MI. in the 1960's and later in the decade she relocated to North Bellmore, NY. Elton passed away from cancer at the Nassau County Medical Center in East Meadow, NY. on June 25, 1971.
