LOST IN THE NOISE

May 18 — OLA BELLE’S BLUES, Ola Belle Reed (date unknown)

imageOnce again David Johansen jars me out of whatever musical rut I happen to be traveling. Over the years I’ve read a lot about early American roots music, especially the musicians who heavily influenced later generations. Then along comes this primitive sound from an Appalachian lady born in 1916 in the hills of North Carolina.
