musicology #445

NewYork NewYork #4

(Leadbelly – New York City)

Ranking slice of New York musicology from the man known as Leadbelly. Much speculation as to the origin of the name but my money is on his fellow inmates in ‘Angola’ mispronouncing it. The two others that I like the sound of are his ability to drink hardcore moonshine and the belly full of lead he apparently took from a 12 bore shotgun…

Not sure where I’ll be posting from I’m landing in JFK around 1pm but I’ll try my best to keep up the flow..
