Don't cry mama, don't cry...

Miss Lillian Offitt recorded six singles, three for the Excello label, and then three more with Earl Hooker on Chief after she moved to Chicago in 1959.

This song is actually the slower, more bluesy, original of something I've already posted, "That Man" by Earl Hooker and the Earlettes [Chief, Age, and Class were sister labels].

While this may sound like a fairly typical Chicago blues record, you're a fool if you don't listen till the 'crying break' kicks in.

Sometimes, it's the small things which set a record apart.
