An Unemployed Sweetheart

(from Redhotjazz.com)
"Lee Morse was a popular singer of the 1920s and early 1930s. She is best remembered today for the backing bands that were assembled for her recording sessions under the name of the Bluegrass Boys. The bands featured many of the best White jazz musicians of the 1920s. Presumably the band was called the Bluegrass Boys to make it sound like they were from the South (Kentucky is called the Bluegrass state). Lee Morse's family had Southern roots but she grew up in Oregon and Idaho, but few if any of the excellent Jazz musicians who played on these records were from the South. The band's music had nothing to do with the string band style of music that arose in the 1940s called Bluegrass."

Although it hasn't been updated in a while, there is an interesting page on Morse at www.leemorse.com where you can listen to some of her other songs, as well as check out some video shorts. Enjoy. +

Thank you most superlativately! Knew Lee Morse only from an old early-Goodman album I bought because of some Annette Hanshaw tracks (and of course Eddie Lang) I didn't have. Her extra lyrics to "It's The Girl" (singular!) are not recorded by one else. It was her version of "Walking My Baby Back Home" I heard first before the old musician's joke: "Gee it's great after raping your date, dragging the body back home". Does anybody know more lines to that version?
Thanks again,

Gee, I thought I was the only one hip to Lee Morse! I have a number of the songs on this album, but they're pretty poor quality compared to these. Glad to be able to upgrade them. Thanks! My favorite Lee Morse song, recorded in her "comeback" period in 1950 is not included here though. It's "If You Only Knew." Now there's a real torch song for you!
