Elmer Fudd Koko Taylor: Any fans out there? (26) RE: Koko Taylor: Any fans out there? 06 Jan 07

That's really interesting--and frustrating! It seems that Abertson tossed off one sentence in liner notes to an album implying that Bessie didn't like such lyrics, but without elaboration or explanation. In his biography of Smith, he contradicts his own statement. Curiouser and curiouser.

In any case, Bessie Smith sings brilliantly. She was fabulous.
