Blind Willie McTell

Broke Down Engine, Take 3 (1933)
Recorded Works, Vol. 2 (1931-1933) 1990 via Vocalian
a note about this track

Willie McTell Is Rightly Revered As One Of The Giants Of Early Acoustic Blues. With A Stylish 12-String Fingerpicking And Slide Guitar, Blind Willie Can Lay Claim To Many Blues Classics; His Influence, Undeniable. McTell's First Recording Session Took Place 1927; Among The Four Tracks Was An Early Version Of "Statesboro Blues," One Of The Many In Blind willie's Canon That Would Go On To Become Blues Standards. Ironically For A Man Who Performed Under So Many Names, His Gravestone Is Engraved 'Eddie McTier'' As The Mason Mistook The Name Of Willie's Cousin, Who Ordered The Stone For The Man Who Would Lie Under It. No Doubt The Good-Natured McTell Would Have Made A Great Song Out Of That! William Samuel McTier Passed On 1959

Moms Bloom (click for more info)

Babies are often referred to as "bundles of joy" - but caring for a newborn is also a very demanding job! Parents need a lot of help during that exhausting postpartum stage, when stress tends to run high and sleep levels run low. MomsBloom is a nonprofit stepping up to meet the need for postpartum support in West Michigan by sending trained volunteers to the homes of families with newborns that need help. Volunteers do things like hold babies while mom gets a nap or shower, or even help with dishes, laundry, and emotional support. Just a few hours of service goes a long way in helping parents gain confidence and become successful. For information on volunteering or signing up to receive services, visit moms bloom dot org
