Performers: Bessie Smith Empty bed blues Audio : Very Hq - CD Quality Sound - MP3 320 Kbps Album : 123 Bessie Smith by Bessie Smith Genre. Smith recorded plenty of 12-bar blues, including raunchier songs like Kitchen Man. Other songs, like W. Handy's St. Louis Blues, were built like Tin Pan Alley tunes but were given the blues-like accompaniment of piano and one horn. Empty Bed Blues Lyrics: I woke up this morning with an awful aching head, I woke up this morning with an awful aching head, My new man had left me just a room and an empty bed, Bought me a coffee.

Bessie Smith April 15, 1894 September 26, 1937 was an American blues singer widely renowned during the Jazz Age. Nicknamed the Empress of the Blues, she was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s. She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and was a major influence on fellow blues singers, as well as jazz vocalists. Empty Bed Blues. Bessie Smith Format: Audio CD. Please retry. This little album gives a very nice beginner cross section of the kind of subjects that she sang about-mainly broken-hearted love, no good men and the trials and tribulations of being a black woman on her own. Bessie's music also represents the place, as with Blind Willie McTell on the male side, where the blues go from the Saturday night juke joints of the farm, make that cotton, country to the more sophisticated Southern city locales
