Randy Rainbow owes a lot to Tom Lehrer. Before musical satire was an accepted art form, Tom was a pioneer (this link expires when the site is taken down.) I was surprised at how little has changed. Except for the outfits, music satire hasn’t changed much. Tom has left his music to the public.
“The End Poem” the end of the game when and if you kill the dragon, was placed in the public domain by Julian Gough via twitter. Public domain is tricky .The placing of anything in the public domain requires the artist to place the work in the public domain As it turns out Julian had no contract with Microsoft or the game’s owner about the poem and contributed it to the public forever. Public Domain made this possible because of contracts Irene had to use an alias to record. You can hear Blake’s vocals in the background.
St. Louis raised Irene Scruggs’ amazing vocals come alive in ” Married Man Blues.” Scruggs blends beautifully with the strumming of Blind Blake’s guitar in this 1930 recording that was never released on 78. Known for her alluring voice and raunchy/sexy blues sensibilities, her voice tunes with the music in such a way that you just feel her passion. Scruggs is a definite female blues recording artist that time has proven worthy Enjoy 🙂
