"Last Kind Words Blues"

Geeshie or Geechie Wiley was a great female blues singer. Her beautiful song "Last Kind Words Blues" (1930) was used in the film "Crumb" (1994) by Terry Zwigoff in the scene where Robert Crumb puts a record on and sits down to listen. Here's the film clip with the music and a slideshow of some of his drawings (from YouTube.)
