Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, July 13, 2021 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

At the heart of this week’s program a selection of guitar blues from the 1927-1931 era. Blues from Victor, Vocalion and Gennett but half from the Paramount label which had extraordinary success in finding down-home artists starting with Blind Lemon and Charley Patton but including many others who made only a few records in their lives, like Freddie Spruell, and those who recorded once or twice to see just a handful of sides appear on Paramount. Also on the program some blues from Detroit; a Cajun segment; Southern Gospel from 1960 and just beyond.
