Famous Hokum Boys- Terrible Operation Blues

The terrible operation is over.

This is filthy! Hilarious and sexy, but remarkably vulgar. The studio aggregation was led by "Georgia Tom," who would become the Rev. Thomas Dorsey soon after this 1930 session. He's considered the founder of black gospel music. And that's Big Bill Broonzy on guitar. Because this Document-label CD is rather obscure and doesn't even feature an image at Amazon, I'll point you to its page there. If you dare to listen to snippets of every song, plan on dropping $13.98, because it's all just as memorable as this shocker.
