SONG OF THE DAY Jessie Mae Hemphill – Standing in my Doorway Crying


jessiemaehemphillJessie Mae Hemphill was a blues guitarist, drummer, vocalist and songwriter who specialised in the North Mississippi hill country blues of her family and regional heritage. She was one of the earliest successful female blues musicians whose influential and pioneering sound gained her the title of ‘Queen of the Guitard Boogie.’

a1222718648_10Geneva’s Bongo Joe Records has recently released a personal ‘best of’ album which contains songs from her two first and only LP’s, ‘She-Wolf’ (1981) and ‘Feelin’ Good’ (1990), two very rare and hard to find albums, and one song from her two only 7″  (High Water 80’s 7″ serie).

Taken from this album comes the superbly-pure, blues greatness of ‘Standing In My Doorway Crying,’ and if you like this, you will love this whole collection!
