Here in South Yorkshire we suffered some major flooding this year, however none of local major recording artists recorded songs about it. The 1927 Louisiana flood inspired some haunting music, as did other floods around the same time. Including:
High Water Everywhere - Charley Patton
Rising High Water Blues - Blind Lemon
Backwater Blues - Bessie Smith
The Flood Blues - Sippie Wallace...
Why have none of our stars addressed the many complicated issues through song? Too many prawns in pop?
