AC/DC Blues is next on the pop shelf. This is one of my compilation mp3 collections of a variety of lps, cds. 121 tracks that runs just over 6 hours. This one is sort of themed – starting with two old lps: AC/DC Blues & The Copulatin’ Blues – as you might guess they pre-40’s jazz/blues/folk dealing with queer & straight sex.
‘Sissyman Blues’ to ‘You Stole My Cherry’ – song with fun double and triple entendre lyrics. Funny raunchy and frankly out there. The two lps were given to me from a pal’s collection – though I did find a fresh copy of Copulatin’ with dozens of extra tracks.
From these I did a search for a couple of performers for more of their stuff and was able to find ‘best of’ sets of Ma Rainey, Ethel Waters, Bo Carter, and Tampa Red. The sound quality for some isn’t great but history is history and without it there is no context for the new.
When I hear the suggestive lyrics current sexy pop stars, or any number of rappers, I can’t but think I’ve heard it before, better and more honestly by some of these ‘old’ musicians. LMFAO manages to catch the raunch with a sense of fun I can dig. Which leads me think of the dearth of the openly sexual in queer pop in particular – but that’ll be my rant on Friday – ‘How Deep Is My Love’ as opposed to ‘How Many Inches Can You Take?’
