Various - Primitive Piano

Barrelhouse piano from Billie Pierce, Speckled Red, Doug Suggs and James Robinson. Blues piano from a period long gone. Listen to Billie Pierce and her lyrics they don't get much bawdier than those.

This has been re-released on cd, with I think, extra tracks on Siren Records. Google Siren records for more info and other cd's.

I'd love to have seen the reaction if Billie Pierce had been around to play at Glastonbury...

I love barrelhouse bawdy music. :-)

Thanks for a great share.

Glad you liked it and I'm sure Billie would've got Glastonbury dancing.

This is wonderful! I have this on vinyl myself, but it's not in great shape, so I really appreciate it. Great music-- I especially love "Get a Working Man"!
