    Dedicated to bluesman bobo Bekker.
    Sippie Wallace (November 1, 1898 -- November 1, 1986). Her early career in local tent shows gained her the billing The Texas Nightingale. Between 1923 and 1927, she recorded over 40 songs for Okeh Records, many written by herself or her brothers, George and Hersal Thomas. Her accompanists included Louis Armstrong, Johnny Dodds, Sidney Bechet, King Oliver, and Clarence Williams. Among the top female blues vocalists of her era, Wallace ranked with Ma Rainey, Ida Cox, Alberta Hunter, and Bessie Smith. In the 1930s, she left show business to become a church organist, singer, and choir director in Detroit, and performed secular music only sporadically until the 1960s, when she resumed her career. Wallace was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1982, and was inducted into the Michigan Women's Hall of Fame in 1993.

    NOTE: this is NOT MY story and is only offered for what it's worth. Ralph

    The Story:

    Like any story passed on with some music this needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Here what was told to me and this is what I know.

    An intern at WMMR in the 80's recorded this show to an
    analog source. Being such a tremendous recording this
    individual longed to re-record the master reel straight to
    a digital source as they became increasingly popular in the
    early 90's. At this point the intern had moved on and no
    longer had this type of access. However, he remembered
    periodically that the studio or the station allowed access
    to the 'records room' for research activity. Posing as a
    university affiliate doing research on 70's radio advertising
    this individual gained access to the master reels with a
    portable Sony DAT deck. The room was laid out with shelves with tables on the far end with cassette decks, reel to reel and 'cart' type recorders. Unplugging the cart recorder and connecting the DAT deck history was then digitized. If you look at the timeline it was more than likely recorded with a Sony TCD D3. This early DAT deck was actually graced with a very nice A to D chip. I believe the same chip found in the Panasonic SV3700. Therefore a very nice digital transcript was made that day.

    At this time I was working at a mail order facility selling
    DAT tapes. Which at the time were very expensive, $12 or more per tape. The individual with this Bonnie recording told us the story above. Is it true? Who knows but he use to buy DAT tapes from us regularly. He made us a cassette of this famous recording and we bugged him to make us a DAT copy for months. He did not have the means to do DAT to DAT. On a visit to the 'store' in Stamford in 1992 we finally were able to make 1 DAT clone. I subsequently cloned that DAT. Most likely the
    clone was made between a Panasonic SV3700 and a Sony 59ES. But, possibly between 2 SV3700's. At the 'shop' we had so many DAT decks with many
    configurations. I have no doubt this is direct from the Pre-FM Reels and one listen and you will have no doubt either. Easily one of the finest recordings by any musician at any time.

    Okeh Records - Sippie Wallace - Dead Drunk Blues 1927
    Sippie Wallace (born as Beulah Thomas, November 1, 1898 – November 1, 1986) was an American singer-songwriter. Her early career in local tent shows gained her the billing The Texas Nightingale. Between 1923 and 1927, she recorded over 40 songs for Okeh Records, many written by herself or her brothers, George and Hersal Thomas. Her accompanists included Louis Armstrong, Johnny Dodds, Sidney Bechet, King Oliver, and Clarence Williams. Among the top female blues vocalists of her era, Wallace ranked with Ma Rainey, Ida Cox, Alberta Hunter, and Bessie Smith.
    In the 1930s, she left show business to become a church organist, singer, and choir director in Detroit, and performed secular music only sporadically until the 1960s, when she resumed her career. Wallace was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1982, and was inducted into the Michigan Women's Hall of Fame in 1993.
    Wallace was born in Plum Bayou, Arkansas, one of 13 children, and later moved with her family as a child to Houston, Texas. In her youth Wallace sang and played the piano in Shiloh Baptist Church, where her father was a deacon, but in the evenings the children took to sneaking out to tent shows. By her mid-teens, they were playing in those tent shows. By performing in the various Texas shows, she built a solid following as a spirited blues singer.
    Wallace came from a musical family: her brother George W. Thomas became a notable pianist, bandleader, composer, and music publisher; her other brother Hersal Thomas was a pianist and composer; and her niece (George's daughter) Hociel Thomas was a pianist and composer.
    In March 1986, following a concert in Germany at Burghausen Jazz Festival, she suffered a severe stroke, was hospitalized, returned to the US, and died on her 88th birthday at Sinai Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. She is buried at Trinity Cemetery, Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan.

    Ladies and gentlemen ...Ms. Sippie Wallace.
    One of our great American blues singers and musicians.
    In her early days - Sippie was accompanied by such great masters as Louis Armstrong (when he was a coronet player) as well as Johnny Dodds, Sidney Bechet, King Oliver, and Clarence Williams. But here it sounds to me like maybe she was accompanied by Sidney Bechet. Not exactly sure. This is from a 78 RPM disc Lets enjoy her tunes while we can huh? Bless her soul.
    Thank you for listening to this great woman of the blues. A musician (!) and wonderful singer in her own right. To read more about Sippie please click here....

    Sippie Wallace was a blues pioneer who began recording in the 1920'a. I met her in Detroit when she was 82, still singing in nightclubs on Saturday night and playing the organ and directing the church choir on Sunday morning. She was a little difficult to understand when she talked, but her message came through loud and clear when she sang. I did this story about Sippie for the Today Show in 1980. She sang such classics as Up the Country Blues, Woman Be Wise, and I'm A Mighty Tight Woman.
