    The Telephone Is Ringing - Pee Wee Crayton

    2:56

    Connie Curtis Crayton (December 18, 1914 -- June 25, 1985), known as Pee Wee Crayton, was an American R&B and blues guitarist and singer. Born in Rockdale, Texas, United States, there are several stories on how Crayton acquired the name Pee Wee. In a Living Blues article in the 1980s, he stated that friend and singer, Roy Brown, gave him the nickname. This makes sense since Brown had a way of making nicknames for many of his friends. It has also been said that his father gave him the nickname as a tribute to a local Texas piano player. Crayton began playing guitar seriously after moving to California in 1935,[3] and settling in San Francisco. While there he absorbed the music of T-Bone Walker, but developed his own unique approach. His aggressive playing contrasted with his smooth vocal style, and was copied by many later blues guitarists. In 1948 he signed a recording contract with Modern Records.[3] One of his first recordings was the instrumental, Blues After Hours, which reached #1 in the Billboard R&B chart late that year.[3] Its B-side, the pop ballad I'm Still in Love With You, and the quicker Texas Hop, were good examples of his work, but his style was of its time and Crayton found it difficult to progress. He went on to record for many other record labels in the 1950s including Imperial in New Orleans, Louisiana, Jamie in Philadelphia and Vee-Jay in Chicago. It is thought he was the first blues guitarist to use a Fender Stratocaster, given to him by Leo Fender. Crayton largely faded from view until Vanguard unleashed his LP, Things I Used to Do, in 1971. After that his profile was raised somewhat; he toured and made a few more albums prior to his death. - wikipedia

    3:03

    VARIOUS: LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE BLUES - THE EVOLUTION OF WEST COAST BLUES

    California experienced a phenomenal growth in independent recording in the postwar years, after decades of dominance by the major labels. Millions had flocked there during the war years and they needed entertainment. It all began with 'The GI Sing-sation', Cecil Gant and his 'I Wonder', a blues ballad that caught the public's imagination. It was also a time for downsizing; the full Johnny Otis Orchestra backed Jimmy Rushing singing 'Jimmy's Round The Clock Blues' but such aggregations quickly broke up and the trend was for small quintets led by the likes of Joe Liggins ('The Honeydripper'), Saunders King ('SK Blues'), Buddy Banks ('Fluffy's Debut'), Jack McVea ('Open The Door Richard') and Roy Milton ('R.M. Blues'). Charles Brown ('Drifting Blues'), Jimmy Witherspoon ('Ain't Nobody's Business') and T-Bone Walker ('Call It Stormy Monday') set the fashion for cool, laidback blues, while Gene Phillips ('Stinkin' Drunk'), Amos Milburn ('Chicken Shack Boogie'), Joe Lutcher ('Rockin' Boogie') and Jimmy Liggins ('Cadillac Boogie') added a little heat to the pot. After Big Jay McNeely's 'The Deacon's Hop' and Wild Bill Moore's 'Rock And Roll', honking sax instrumentals became a major sales incentive. The market was crowded with pianist/singers like Little Willie Littlefield ('It's Midnight'), Ivory Joe Hunter ('I Almost Lost My Mind'), Jimmy McCracklin ('Beer Drinkin' Woman'), Roy Hawkins ('Why Do Everything Happen To Me') and a young Ray Charles ('Late In The Evening Blues'). As the 1950s began, rhythm and blues took centre stage, preparing the ground for the advent of rock'n'roll. Percy Mayfield ('The River's Invitation') remained cool but newcomers like Lloyd Price ('Lawdy Miss Clawdy'), Young John Watson ('Motorhead Baby'), Willie Mae Thornton ('Hound Dog'), Etta James ('The Wallflower') and Linda Hopkins ('Yes I Know') sang to a stronger beat. Meanwhile, the blues had not been forgotten, Pee Wee Crayton ('When It Rains It Pours'), Jimmy Wilson ('Tin Pan Alley'), James Reed ('Things Ain't What They Used To Be') and Johnny Fuller ('Roughest Place In Town') could still stir the emotions. Saxophonists still made the charts but as an indication of what was to come, guitarists like Pete 'Guitar' Lewis ('Louisiana Hop') and Jimmy Nolen ('Strollin' With Nolen') also found themselves popular. By 1956, the year of Jimmy McCracklin's 'Savoy's Jump', rock'n'roll had knocked down the door. Public taste was changing and within a couple of years the music celebrated here was old-fashioned and passed by.

    So I come across this song and it's stuck in my freakin' head! Out of curiosity I see it ain't on YouTube. So now I want to post it. Surely, it isn't for the 9th Ward Jukebox. Won't fit on the Blues Box either. My only alternative is the obscure AnX box channel. That channel is a train wreck and I seldom post over there and when I do, I do it quietly. This song is to good so I've decided, based on the artist; Blues Box wins! Enjoy!

    CRAYTON, CONNIE CURTIS [PEE WEE] (1914–1985). Blues guitarist Connie Curtis (Pee Wee) Crayton was born in Rockdale, Texas, on December 18, 1914. His family moved to Austin while he was a child. The boy, whose father called him Pee Wee in honor of a local pianist, began playing music early in life after building a makeshift guitar-like instrument from a cigar box. Later, as a teenager, he received his first formal musical training on trumpet and ukulele through his school band.

    In 1935 Crayton moved to Los Angeles. During the 1940s he performed throughout California in a variety of different venues. He was influenced by the playing of T-Bone Walker. One musicologist called him a shaper of the West Coast blues sound. Among the musicians Crayton toured or recorded with in the 1950s and 1960s were Ivory Joe Hunter, Lowell Fulson, Gatemouth Brown, and Ray Charles. He first charted in 1948 with Blues After Hours, an instrumental on the Modern label, which reached number one on Billboard's rhythm and blues chart. He soon had other successes with Texas Hop (1948), which reached number five, and I Love You So (1949), which reached number six. Crayton later recorded for other labels, including Vee-Jay, Aladdin, and Imperial, but with less success. Seeing his popularity declining, he moved to the Midwest to play music and try his hand at various other jobs, including golf hustling, before returning to Los Angeles in the 1960s. During this period he drove a truck and occasionally collaborated on songs with his wife, Esther.

    Crayton launched a musical comeback in 1970, when he played with Johnny Otis at the Monterey Jazz Festival. He released his first album, Things I Used to Do (Vanguard), the following year. Crayton also performed on albums by Lightnin' Hopkins, Joe Turner, and Dizzy Gillespie. He continued to record and tour throughout the remainder of his life, and his performances included an appearance at Antone's in Austin. Crayton died in Los Angeles on June 25, 1985, and was buried in Inglewood Park Cemetery.
