1st recorded and copyrighted by Gertrude "Ma" Rainey in 1924. I couldn't find her version but I did find this song she did.. Kinky! I wonder if women shaved their private parts to look like landing strips back then like they do these days?
See See Rider blues or C.C. Rider is one of the most popular blues songs and has been recorded with over 100+ versions. Wee Bea Booze turned it into a #1 hit on the billboards in 1943.
as you know I LOVE The Animals. Love their version.
