I remember that one, not by her though. Feel inspired to go in attic and find my ancient blues LPs, probably sound as scratchy as that one unfortunately.

Possibly Ottilie Patterson with Chris Barber's band? She made some really good covers of a number of Bessie Smith songs.

Alas she took to the bottle and that was the end of her career.
