HEAVY HEARTED BLUES

“Sing ’em, Jimmie, sing ’em!”


Heavy Hearted Blues
Tom Darby & Jimmie Tarlton – 1928

  1. I find Darby & Tarlton to be amongst the most interesting hillbilly artists from the '20s - mainly because of the obvious influence of African-American music. I was so taken by their sound that I went out and bought the 3-cd Bear Family Set (the extensive notes were worth the price alone.)

    (You deserve to have more traffic - have you thought about leaving a comment and link for Ryp over at the Twilight Zone? He's very nice and will likely put one up for you.)

    1. Thanks. . . . D&T are great aren't they? And this is my favorite Tarlton vocal, all his falsetto swoops are just the thing to put the feeling across on this tune.
