Charlie McCoy – “Baltimore Blues” (mp3)

Mississippi blues man Charlie McCoy was an anomaly in his time. Known for having one of the sweetest voices in recorded blues, he was also an accomplished mandolin player. In “Baltimore Blues” (recorded in Chicago, August 16, 1937) Charlie proselytizes his favorite American city, Baltimore, which, according to his song, is a city where the women and booze flow wildly like the mighty Mississippi.
