Program Notes

Sugar Blues was written in 1920 by Clarence Williams and recorded for the first time by Leona Williams and her Dixie Band in 1922. The song was made popular as Clyde McCoy's trademark tune, featuring the sound of the growling wah-wah trumpet mute. Although McCoy's version was strictly instrumental, there are lyrics, written by Lucy Fletcher.
