i mentioned him about week ago when i posted about Caravan Place. so i thought it would be rude to bring him back in the lime light after 3 years that’s right and has Gramophonedzie with his most well-known song Why Don’t You,
a lil bit of music trivia for you (thanks Wiki)
“Why Don’t You Do Right?” first appeared in 1936 as “The Weed Smoker’s Dream“, composed by McCoy and recorded by his band, the Harlem Hamfats. The song was subtitled “Why Don’t You Do Now” on the original release. McCoy later rewrote the song, refining the composition and changing the lyrics entirely. The new tune was titled “Why Don’t You Do Right?” and was recorded by Lil Green in 1941 (with guitar played by Big Bill Broonzy). The recording was an early jazz and blues hit.
