Walter Rhodes – “Leaving Home Blues” (mp3)

Walter Rhodes – “Leaving Home Blues” (mp3)

“Leaving Home Blues” is not only a rare recording, it also features the ONLY African-American accordionist to be recorded in 1927 – Walter “Pat” Rhodes. Rhodes’ unusual choice of instrument caused him to be largely ignored by the blues community. There is little evidence that Walter ever recorded another side in his life. But this track is gr8.
