Here’s one of my alltime favourite blues songs. Little is known about the artist and to my knowledge, the song is only available on a bootleg album called WEST COAST GUITAR KILLERS VOL.1 on El Segundo Records. Here’s what the liner notes say:
“Little Miss Janice is an enigma. What little is know about her is that she came from Texas, she played guitar and she had a knack for songwriting. After this recording for PROVERB, she went on to cut for Paul Gayten’s PZAZZ label. Johnny Adams covered “Scarred Knees” on his first LP for Rounder.”
Tomorrow, I’m gonna post a terrific Eddie Boyd killer song called “The Blues Is Here To Stay” so come back soon. In the meantime, enjoy lovely Little Miss Janice!
